Dysfunctional Boat Names

We'll just go ahead and let this email and picture speak for themselves. Submit your boat name ideas below:

I work at a naval recreation facility where I do boat repair, launch etc. My family is beyond dysfunctional I live with them until I move onto my new boat but we don't speak. I love music, huge fan. My girlfriend's name is Emilie and I love the name but don't want to screw myself over by naming the boat after her - you all know what I'm talking about haha.

I have had a few names in mind such as Ariel, Miss 'Em, Knotty (this seems to common)

I am just stuck I can't seem to figure out one that really fits. This will be my home for the next few years as I finish up my degree in philosophy and psychology and may even live on her through grad school. So some help to at least get some creative juices would be great.
Okay, folks, let's get this guy's new home named for him. Suggestions please!

Silverton Boat Names

Received this message a few weeks ago, and figured they've waited three years to name their boat, they can wait three more weeks. Now, it's time to help them... please read this story and suggest boat names below:
My husband Tom and two sons, Tom (age 22) and Tim (age 19) and I love to travel and see new things. We have traveled to all of the U.S. states except Calif in a motor home and have seen many things. We then began to explore the Caribbean (St. Lucia which we really loved, Tortola which was great (Long Bay Beach particularly), the Bahamas, etc.

We love boats and the outdoors (fishing, camping, snow and water skiing, hiking, and especially boating). We had a 20foot Sea Ray since 1976 and would trailer it to nearby lakes to ski and boat.

After 30 years, we finally made the decision (which we had been discussing forever) to buy a boat and dock it on Lake Erie near the Islands in western Ohio. We bought a 45 foot Silverton at a great price three years ago and we love it and going up there every weekend to boat. We like to go to the islands (put-in-bay, kelley's), and cruise to new places (which we haven't done too much of yet).

We have had the boat for three years (this is the third season) and haven't been able to come up with a name that we all like. Any ideas?

Shes My Pride and Joy

We can all relate to how this guy feels about his boat, can't we? Now let's help him name her. Here's his message and a photo of his actual boat; please post your boat name ideas below:
I recently purchased a 2010 186 cc key west and have since been taking it out fishing, joy riding, and to hang out with other boaters.

I have fell in love with the water and the atmosphere. When I am not on the water I think about getting on the water and when is the next day I can get on the water even if its only for a couple hours. My boat is my pride and joy.

Any ideas would be much appreciated. Also, if you need to know more about me let me know. Thanks

Eliminator Boat Names

If you've ever seen an Eliminator, you know they are rockets on the water. A bold choice for one's first boat. But hey, we're not here to judge... we're just here to name some boats. We got this message about two weeks ago and need help with boat name suggestions. Post em if you got em, below the photo.
It is an eliminator and it goes about 90 plus but its only 25 ft long. Its our first boat. Its red white and blue. We are the youngest couple of our powerboat crew.
