Boat Names of the Week

The boat name of the day for Friday is Bill Collector.

Each day, as of this week, we started selecting a new boat name of the day and announcing it on Twitter. We pick interesting boat names that are sent to us, or from our customers that come in each day through our online stores - Custom Boat Names which sells vinyl boat lettering and Boat Name Gear which sells, you guessed it, gear such as shirts, hats and welcome mats with your boat name embroidered on it.

Send us your boat name on Twitter (@FirstBoat) or post it as a comment below for consideration.

Monday: Reel Escape (This came in from an anonymous customer of Boat Name Gear who purchased embroidered boat name shirts for someone else as a gift. Isn't that nice?)

Tuesday: Fish Tales (that is the boat name of the winner of the July BoatUS contest, in which they gave away $200 worth of Boat Name Gear)

Wednesday: Champagne For No Reason (Sent to us by Carl Blackwell, the owner of a boat by that name and the spokesman for DiscoverBoating. Carl told us that the boat name translates: celebrate life everyday.)

Thursday: Amazing Grace (an anonymous customer in Mass who bought his vinyl boat name lettering from Custom Boat Names)

And finally, wrapping up the week, today's boat name of the day, Bill Collector, was suggested via Twitter by @AquaBrothers. Great name for a sport fishing boat!

Spinning some boat names

Great, thorough boat name request, complete with picture. Surely we can help these folks out:

My husband and I need a name for our boat, we have three children ages 17, 11 &8. We own a DJ business and my husband will retire from the airforce in 5 years. We enjoy tubing with the kids or just floating around! We can't wait to have more time for ourselves and relaxing on the water! Our retirement home will have a private dock on a lake! Can you help us out. Thank you

The Crown Jewels

Received the following message from a nice retired couple with a nice boat. Please check out their story and suggest some boat names for them, and maybe they'll take me for a ride:
We own a 43 tiara sovran, tiara's company boat name is Crown Jewel, so something related to jewelry would be fitting for this boat. Our last boat name was Porta Party, but lately (because of porta potties) everyone was mispronouncing the name. We are retired living in SW Florida, had a trucking business and belong to a boating club.
