Any boat name but Journeyman II

We received this request for help a few weeks ago from a young man trying to help his mom and dad name their new boat. Please have a look and suggest your boat names below:
My parents have had a sailboat since 1984. They have kept it in the marina on Seneca Lake (one of the finger lakes) in Watkins Glen, NY. As my dad was a journeyman electrician, they named the boat "Journeyman", to reflect both his job and his adventure seeking nature. As with all sailboaters, they decided to upgrade to a larger sailboat and they are having trouble naming it. "Journeyman 2" doesn't have the same ring to it.


One of the reasons for the upgrade was to accommodate our growing family. They now have me and my other 2 siblings as well as 2 grandkids. They have both recently retired and they would love nothing more than to have the whole family join them on the lake for the weekends.Any help would be appreciated!

Newlyweds, New Sailors, New Boat Name

We received this message and picture a few weeks ago...Please read below and suggest your boat name ideas for this O'Day:
My husband and I were married last August and we just bought our first boat that's ours (not family's). It's a used boat - 25' O'day sailboat, which we plan on sprucing up.
(continues after photo...)

I am a Realtor and my husband designs platforms for online education. We are both independent contractors. We woke up one morning and decided to learn to sail. Two weeks later, we were in a sailing class, and one week after that, we purchased our first boat which we keep in a slip at a local sailing club. We both love the water, boating, and the outdoors. We like to socialize and have fun. We plan on meeting a lot of other people with sailboats and making new friends. Thanks for your help!

Beantown Boat Names

Let's play the word association game. We received this message recently - let us know if any boat name ideas pop into your head.

All we can think of is "Red Sox Suck", so, admittedly, us Yankee fans are not being very helpful:
sporting family, red sox fan, boat is red, mike little is my name, skiers and wake boarders

Still can't think of a boat name based on those key words? Try this picture we just found on a google search something Red Sox and Boating related...

Need for Speed Boat Names

Boat Name for a Sugar Mama

Wow, there are so many different directions you can go with this one. Here's the entire original message we recently received, complete with family photo. Love it! Have a read, and suggest your boat names below:
Family of five. Spending time with family is our favorite thing to do. Love being outside and on the water. Love the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Boat is red.

Please help come up with a boat name for this beautiful family of five!

We have a place up north near Tomahawk (city)on the Spirit (lake). We call our place up north "Big Bear."

Husband calls me his Sugar Mama (like Sugar Daddy) because I work full time and he's a stay-at-home-dad. We were thinking about calling our new boat "Sugar Mama" or something with Sugar in the name. The other angle of sugar -- having a boat is SWEET!

Anyway, he wants it to be a name you can actually CALL the boat. Not just something clever printed on the boat. For example, we have an old slow, beat-up, cheap fishing boat we call the Blue Bomber. We actually say, "Let's take the Blue Bomber out fishing." Another example, my brother has an old pick-up truck he calls "Trixie." Love all the clever names (and am not against clever) but it needs to be a name you actually refer to the boat as. We don't want a name printed on the side of the boat but then still just call it "the boat."

Does that make sense?
