Aviation Boat Names

We received this message recently but have not come up with any good boat (or business) names for them. What would you suggest? Please comment below their message:
My boyfriend, myself and our best friend have just purchased a 30 Wellcraft to use for charter fishing in the Gulf. We are all in the Aviation business (Purchasing, Maintenance and Engineering) and cannot think of a name for this boat or the Charter Service we would like to operate. We would like to somehow link the boat name and business name to the three of us and our Aviation careers.  

Boat Name for a Shrink

His words, not ours. Let's just help this good doctor name his boat based on his original message, which we received a few weeks ago:
I was a shrink for 35 years, so psychology (or mental issues)(lol) are fair game. I'm leaning toward using my wife's name "Joy" in the name instead of the vocation, but I'm open to all suggestions. The boat will only be used for freshwater fishing. TIA.

Boat Names on the Bayou

We've been trying to come up with a boat name for this fixer-upper since we got the following message:
We just got a small outboard motor boat for the first time. We've been married 22 years and it's been our dream to own a little boat to just relax and enjoy spending time on. Certainly nothing fancy. It's in rough shape so we are completely restoring it ourselves, together as a project. We plan on using this boat to fish, but mostly for cruising down the bayous, lakes and swamps of Louisiana. Also, frequently we'll likely have another couple with us for evening cruises featuring appetizers and cocktails. We enjoy spending time with friends and family and what better way to do it!

I am an American, recently married to a Canadian.

I am thinking of naming the boat after him. His name is Warren and goes by Bud.

Non Kitschy Boat Names

Received this message a few weeks ago and need YOUR help naming the boat, mostly because nobody here knows what kitschy means, and we definitely don't speak arabic or german. Here is the message, which by the way is quite appropriate for the approaching Father's Day weekend. Your boat name ideas below, please.
This is my first boat, bought as a tribute to my father who passed away last February (2010). He taught me to boat in the marshes of SE Georgia and dreamed of owning a Mako or Whaler. I bought a 1966 Chris Craft Commander, all vintage bullet-proof fiberglass with old-school feel. Looking for a name that combines my Southern history, my new life in the pacific NW (Puget Sound) and maybe is a nod to my profession: Real estate. I don't like kitschy names, and I love foreign words (I speak Arabic, a bit of German, some Spanish, French)

Boat Name with Room for Dogs

We received this email from Lauren a few weeks ago, and have not had a chance to suggest any boat names.  Do you have any ideas? Here is here boat's picture and original message:
Can you name this Trojan F26
I married into a family filled with watermen. We have 2 children, 3 dogs, my husband is a police officer and I am a acquisition manager. This boat was purchased solely for my pleasure, as my husband has a speed boat that lacks room for the dogs. We just put in a new motor, and freshened up the interior with new cushions, stained the wood... I enjoy putting around, tying up at the islands all day then bar hopping at night.
