Hurricane Boat Names

A Lieutenant Colonel just sent us a boat name request today that we felt we had to post right away.

After all, the boat she needs help naming is a Hurricane, and with Hurricane Sandy on top of everybody's mind, this particular boat name request seemed very appropriate. She even sent us a picture (of the boat, not the storm), so have a look and let's help her name her boat...

Here's her photo and message:

Santa Claus Parade Boat Names

We received this message a while back but have been waiting until closer to the holidays to post it thinking you'd be able to conjure up more ideas as Christmas gets closer. Maybe we should have given you more time, but the pressure is on now... the boat parade is less than a month away.

Here's the message and a photo from the boat owner - add your boat name ideas as comments below, please!
My husband and I would like to add a float to our local Santa Claus parade and this year, we are cutting the bottom out of the boat that we got from the dump and putting it on top of our ATV so that you can't see the ATV. I will be pulling a trailer that will carry two of my friends dressed up as elves and they will be water skiing. I would like the boat name to say something like....."December 26th" or "The Off Season". I need the name to be Christmas related and kid friendly. Thanks!!!!

Boat names for catalina sailboat
My husband is a mining engineer and new lover of sailing. I am an HR manager and love to make pottery. I love dragonflies and keep thinking I'd like to incorporate that somehow, but other name suggestions would be great. We have... a family of 4 daughters and 2 boys. We are both from the north and transplants to the south. We plan to retire at the beach when we get older, but now just working to get kids graduated and through college. This is our first boat. My initials are RR and my husbands are PR. The boat is a Catalina 25.
