Three Brothers Boat Name Ideas

Read this message and suggest some boat names for these 3 brothers:
I raced sailboats for about 20 years. I just switched to a Chaparral Signature 290, which has no name. My sailboat names were Asylum (Choat 37) and Expresso (Express 37), but Asylum is still being used.
3 brothers boat names
3 partners all brothers... we don't want the 3 in the name.

We all grew up in Puget Sound, Seattle. One of my brothers is now in New Mexico until he retires in a couple years...Intel. 2 are programmers, one builds chips...vp intel.

Trying to get a name outside of work that is fun and unique (Yeah I know...). We do just about anything you can imagine..., snowmobile, 4-wheelers, sail, power boat, jet ski, fish, NASCAR, F1, concerts...

It is a fast cruiser, and we have another fishing boat (Chromatoas)(Chrome stealheads), so I want to stay away from fish names.

P.S. Some wives may need to agree to it.
Please help...

Wolverine Boat Names

We got this message last week and would love to see some boat name ideas from other Michigan fans:
We just bought our first boat after 5 summers of owning a lake house. We have a 2005 25 ft Bennington pontoon. It has blue detail coloring on the side, which is perfect b/c we are Michigan Wolverine fans. Was hoping to get the big M symbol with a Michigan saying of some sort?
Note: this picture is not the actual boat described, but a random pontoon boat we've used for other posts.

Another Boat Name for a Pontoon Boat, Eh?

Ok, nothing much to go on here, but maybe the Havasu - Canada connection will mean something to someone who will come up with a brilliant boat name idea. Here's the original message I got from a man who also indicated he likes to fish, water ski and socialize on his boat:

Help Name This Robalo

Finally, a comprehensive boat name request and a picture of the actual boat! Read on, and post your boat name ideas below:
I am a mechanic. I have a girlfriend of 7 years, and we love to travel and love to fish. We love anything about the ocean and every animal in it. I have been fishing since I was 5 years old. I got this 1995 Robalo 24 foot walkaround for a great deal.

It was a one owner boat, and even came with the owner's manual! Right now it is called AM and FM, for the previous owner and his wife's initials, so I have to rename it. It was really dirty because it sat around for a year, so I have been cleaning it every day. I am finally ready to go out on it, but I need a name! My girlfriend has been trying for weeks to think of one and nothing seems right. Please help!

Husband: commercial fisherman (scallops), skiing, airplanes.

Help Name Ginny's First Boat

Virginia Bailey sent us a boat name request for her first boat, and she was nice enough to let us include her name on this post. That is good, because "Bailey" is one of those names that lends itself well to boats (especially if you drink). All she told us about the boat is that it is a powerboat.

Anyway, here's her message.
Please post boat name ideas below: I am 52 years old, An x-ray technologist specializing in CAT (CT) Scan. I am called Ginny or Virginia. This is my first boat.

An Alarming Boat Name

Donna sent in a very detailed boat name request last week... There is a lot to work with here, so have a read and suggest some boat names!

Here is her message:

My dad, the boat's legal owner, is Rip. We love to fish! We are trying to think of a boat name that includes our security company and fishing somehow.

This is not the exact boat, but another 32' Yellowfin we found for sale on Scroll down to suggest a boat name for this family.
