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.

Boat Names for Guys and Gals


Boat name help needed! I just received this message from a family trying to name their boat:
There are three of us. Me, my wife and son. Her maiden name is pronounced "guys" but spelled differently. We thought it would be fun to play off "three guys" but haven't found the right way. Also, I'm from the Chesapeake area, so something related to that would be cool. Other than that, we're short on ideas that really catch us.
Got any ideas for these guys? Please post them below.
