Formula for a Boat Name

Received the following message a few weeks ago, lost it, then found it again.

Can you help the owner of this Formula find a great boat name? Here's their email and picture of their actual boat:
Owner of 2nd "330 SS Formula"

First one named "Day Dream". Both are white with blue trim.
Retired Manager/Engineer.
Wife Ruth and I use the boat in South Florida for cruising and rendezvous.
Also we are continuously entertaining our guests in Florida in winter.
Have considered:

1. Happy Ours
2. Ruthie "Oh"
3. Jim Dandy ( former CB handle)
4. Happy Hoosier (Born and live in Indiana in summer)
5. Dandy

Maybe it's because March Madness is around the corner, but I love the name Happy Hoosier, especially based on your experience.

Makes for a great conversation piece while the boat is in Florida, too!

I like Happy Ours. I've always liked puns for boat names. If I had a boat like that, I'd call her Plain Vanilla, but since I'll likely never have have one, you're welcome to the name if you like it! Cheers!

I like the Hoosier Daddy too, or the Happy Hoosiers. Not Happy Ours--too common. Dandy is unusual, easy to say, and works at different levels of meaning.
