Boat Name Alternative to Marcia VI

Recieved this message, along with a picture of a boat, a few weeks ago... still no boat name. Please suggest some below via the comments field. Thanks!
Berkshire 220 CL LTD2
We are buying this pontoon boat. Our last boat was named after my wife, "Marcia V". I did the lettering with a Polish flag off of the "V". My wife and I are both 42 years old, we have one twelve year old son and a female golden retriever. I'm a truck driver and she's a receptionist. I'm Polish/German and she's Polish. We're Catholic. Favorite color is red. Family is very important to us all. We are Detroit fans and huge fans of Chrysler corp vehicles ie (Chrysler, Dodge, Ram) Also of Cadillac. We love cruising our inland waterways river system. I was a Great Lakes Merchant Mariner (Mate)for twenty two years.

Top Ten Boat Names

Top 10 most popular boat names, 2011

Photo © Boat Name Gear
Our partners over at FirstBoat.com just announced the most popular boat names of 2011. In reviewing the list, the FirstBoat folks noticed a trend among the boat names. It turns out boaters are expressing the fact that they enjoy the calmness and friends-and-family-time that they get to experience out on the water. Sure, sort of an obvious statement, but in the recent past boat names such as Stimulus and Bail Out were in the top ten.

But this year, the names are all about the "chill". Names like Serenity, Happy Ours, Family Time and Just Chillin dominated this year’s top ten. Do boaters know how to relax more than the rest of the population? More importantly, is your boat name on the list?

Bequested Boat Name

Normally we have boat name requests, but this one is a boat name bequest. We received this message a while back, and Matt just reminded us he still needs help with his boat name. So we are going to the blog! Here is his photo and message; please post your boat name suggestions below:
Can you help name this EBBTIDE?
Hi my name is Matt. I am 24 years old and have been around boats through my father since I was about 6.

Just recently a very close family friend passed away and he left me his boat; she has never been named so I feel I should name her. She is a 17 foot EBBTIDE Montego 170.

I am a trailer boater and generally run the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, PA but also love to take trips to Lake Raystown.

The boat is two tone white and blue and is a 3.0L mercruiser sterndrive with an Alpha One outdrive.

I like some of the double meaning names I've seen, i.e. on a jet boat I have seen "going propless" I would prefer a two word name so it fits nicely on the hull, but whatever you can come up with is worth a shot, I've been struggling to name this boat for a while.

My dad's boat is named the Misty C. (our last name starts with a "C").

Thanks very much for your time and thoughts and happy boating!!!

Carolina Boat Names

We received the following a message a few weeks ago - hopefully this nice Carolina couple hasn't had any more scratches before we got a chance to post this story. Oh, and please submit your boat names below!

My wife and I bought a 2010 SeaRay 240 SunDancer and are struggling to come up with a name for her.

I was and still am a golfaholic, but I have always liked being out on a boat.

We live in Charleston SC and this is the 1st time I have been on a boat that wasn't on a lake.

I have been a big Hootie and the Blowfish fan, so much we named our Dog "Hootie". We used to live up in Asheville NC before we move to Charleston so we are still trying to get used to the low country.

I went to NC STATE and I am a big supporter of their athletic program.

We have looked at tons o boat names to try and come up with ideas but have not made any progress on our maiden voyage we actually had trouble docking and got our first "scratch" which cost us $600 to get fixed so we need to find a name soon before we REALLY have problems.

Thanks for your help!

We are a couple residing in AR fixing to buy our first boat, A red Velocity speed boat.

We are both proudly from Texas but relocated here for Oil and Gas for the hubby and I am a Nurse.

We love to party, socialize, sun and love the water.

Favorite color for both of us is RED. We are both Leo's and both love to workout, stay in shape and show it off. Originally wanted something with Texas on the boat... but having some blocks.
