Is it ok to name a kayak?

I don't know what I liked more about this post from Andy's Building Things Blog - the discussion of boat naming (such as whether or not it's proper to name a kayak), or the reference to the brilliant British Darts Quiz Show.

The quiz looks a little like the Price Is Right, only with more darts.

As a purveyor of boat names, I definitely found the blog more informative, if not more entertaining. Especially after seeing the depth at which Andy discusses boat names, not just in the aforementioned post, but also in this older one about Vesper. I also like the name Pacifier, especially if you have young'uns.

By the way, I think it's perfectly fine to put a name on a kayak.

What do you think? Is a kayak worthy of a boat name?

Of course it's okay to name a kayak! I named my yellow kayak Rubber Ducky and my red and orange kayak Hot Lava!! My husband got a new kayak for Christmas. It is beige/tan. He still can't come up with a name. We also have a green Old Towne canoe my sister Val named the Green Tambourine after the 60's song.

I was wondering the same thing. Of course the name came naturally "Salma Kayak".
