Electric Boat

Electric Boat, or EB for short, is one of the largest employers in south-eastern Connecticut. That's about all I could think of when I received this boat name idea request last week:

I'm looking for a really great electric boat name. We have a brand new 16ft Electracraft Partycruiser that needs a name.

My lame suggestions:

Electric Boat
EB Phone Home
Edison's Folly
Good Buzz

Boat Name Machine

Sometimes you just need a little creative spark to get you thinking of great boat name ideas. That's why I created the magic, automatic, mystical generator of custom boat name ideas at The program can randomly generate tens of thousands of boat name ideas with a simple click. You can check it out here.

The boat name idea generator is also available at FirstBoat with a slightly different set of potential boat names in the system. You can check out FirstBoat's Boat Name Machine if you need additional ideas or if the CustomBoatNames link is down.

An Extension of Custom Boat Names

I started this blog in an effort to engage passionate, creative people help boaters choose name for their new boats. I run an online store called CustomBoatNames, where you can design and preview vinyl boat lettering before you buy it. We ship our easy-to-apply vinyl boat lettering with easy-to-follow instructions. Boaters seem to enjoy the ease of application and high quality of our products. But sometimes, it is tough to think of a name.

Every week I get emails from owners of new boats looking for suggestions for boat names. I'm pretty creative IMHO, but I can't do it alone. I plan to post boat owners' requests here on this blog so that others may post comments and suggestions, and help the boat owners pick the perfect boat name.

Let's see what happens...
