    Default How did you come up with the name of your boat?

    I was noticing that more people have filled in their profiles now with the name of their boat and they are showing up on the forum. This made me curious how they came up with their name. You know there is always a story.

    So I figured this might be an interesting topic and since there are so many different types of Lettering and artwork available, if you can post a picture showing the name.

    I'll start off with

    "WooHoo"

    We had been busy everyday until nearly midnight racing to get our boat ready for the water before the summer boating season ended. Finally we were getting closer to the end of the list and I told Penney we should be ready to go in appx one more week, but we needed to come up with a name.

    She shouted "WooHoo" and I responded, well I guess that could be a name, then she corrected me the her intent was woohoo we are almost done, however the name remains.

    Sweet 'P' has a bit shorter of a story. My wife's name is Paula and she's pretty sweet.

    Old boat was Driftwood. I wanted a name like that and had a few ideas. My at the time GF (now wife) said its from a movie she loves (I believe the count of monte cristo) and it sounded good to me.

    The Silvertons name came from my mothers idea. It refers to the people just out for a Sunday drive, with the sun and day split up.

    Our son is a special needs child with multiple diagnoses, and his best friends have Fragile X- they all have significant issues making friends and responding properly to other people HOWEVER, anytime they are on the water (together or individually) they seem to temporarily shed all their issues and become average, happy, playful children. The 'new', larger boat was to provide room for all of us to 'socialize' in relative comfort, and the name reflects the ultimate result of every moment on the water!

    Social Therapy

    (this is a working draft- we will settle on our final design soon but this is REALLY close)

    "The Caroliner" because I live in South Carolina,I like the ocean, and the looks of the old early 1900's ocean liners.

    Cap'n Ray, that is a great story behind the name. You sure picked a great safe boat for your son and his friends with lots of room to move. "Social Therapy" seems quite fitting and the Rx makes me wonder if you might try claiming the whole project as a medical expense!

    Thanks Roger. I passed your comment along, everybody got a kick outta that- wonder if I could convince one of his doctors to write that prescription; they'd HAVE to let me claim the expense then! Lol.

    Our last name is Hocking so "Sea Hock" seemed to fit nicely. Our 1st boat a 240 sundancer was "SHOCKING" after my wife
    Shirley Hocking. Perhaps our next boat will be "In Hock"
