Boat Name for a Rinker

Got this message, need some boat name ideas.

At first you don't think this new boat owner gives you much to work with, but then you read between the lines. They identify themselves as 'busy'. Probably a couple with two full-time jobs, and the young kids are at that age where evenings and weekends start to get sucked up by soccer practices, cub scouts, dance lessons and other activities requiring a mini van. You know these folks, because they are you. Now help name their boat.

Here's their original unedited boat name request:
family of 4, 2 kids, 7 yr boy, 3 year girl. LOVE the lake! we have a 02 27 ft rinker. weekends at the lake are our down time from busy life and work.
Oh, and by the way, they sent us another note with a pic and said they would also like the word "Young" worked into the boat name. That helps! And here is a picture of their boat...

Name this Rinker boat

You know how witty he thinks his boat name is - he is as proud of the boat's name as he is of the boat. But people only see the boat name when they're on the boat with him. But there is something you can do about that.

Get him a personalized t-shirt or captain polo shirt from Boat Name Gear. With his boat's name and hailing port elegantly embroidered on the left chest, your dad will be wearing a conversation piece and symbol of one of his favorite things - his boat.
