Boat of Darkness

We received the following message recently from a new boat owner (almost) down in Florida. Please check out their story and post comments with good boat name ideas:
My new boat is going to be a 32 ft Yellowfin Center Console with an all-black hull. We live on Siesta Key, FL, and this is going to be primarily a hardcore fishing boat for tuna, marlin, swordfish, sailfish, dolphin, grouper, and snapper.

We've been trying to think of a name that incorporates the theme of the black hull or at least dark or darkness.

We've come up with many names, but it always seems that they've been on other boats that we've seen in the area, we'd prefer something unique. Of course there may be other boats with the same name somewhere in the world, but we'd prefer if we were the only ones with a particular name locally.

A few come to mind:

Water Reaper [just like the Grim Reaper, but wetter]

Black & Tan [The boat, and you. Together you are my favorite beer]

BlackBelly [Arrggh, matey]

Orca, but too obvious and been used
Blackbeard - for the pirate theme, but again, probably taken
Dark & Stormy - keeping with the drink theme (Bermuda drink if you're not familiar with it)
Black Russian (same theme). Boat graphic could be interesting.
Black Hole (Hull?) - deep space theme
Dark Intentions
The Shadow

To name but a few.....
