Boat Name for the Church Lady

Just came across a very nice blog where a (self-admitted) 40+ year old wife, mother and church secretary from Pennsylvania is asking for help with a name for a new pontoon boat. Her family is picking up the boat this weekend in Michigan according to her post.

Her choices include:
  • CC Rider
  • The Mae-Lynn
  • Back In Black
  • Toon Time
  • It's About Time
Not only does she give a good background for each choice, but she's also got a voting box so you can let her know your favorite!

Let her know your favorite boat name choice at or post your other suggestions here.

Solar Boat Names

We got this message a while ago and haven't come up with a name. He likes to fish and socialize on his boat. Can you help?

Original message from the boat owner:
Hi, looking to try and name a new boat around the Solar Industry.

We run a business around renewable energy and wanted to try and utilize this or the Solar industry with my other interests around big game fishing.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

The boat is a 31 Contender
