APRIL | MAY 2017 BoatU.S. Magazine | 61
My head is now spinning, my hand’s growing weak
Where is the Perfection that I seek?
Please give me Patience, a little Endurance
I think I just need some self-assurance
I know that a boat name can’t say it all
It just has to work as a radio call
Something to put on our documentation
That speaks rather well of our reputation
Could somebody famous lend us his name?
Maybe not Cap’N Crunch, but
There’s always Mark Twain
Through every porthole the sun has now risen
Please find me a cure for my indecision
Another day, another list
Will there be no end to this?
What would please my jolly skipper?
Sun Salutation or Big Dipper
River Dance, Yonder, Fare Thee Well
Would Happiness Project ring his bell?
What would look good with our port of call?
How about nothing — nothing at all?
480 Sea Ray (not
pictured), is the
34th boat owned
by BoatU.S. members Cheryl (at left)
and Scott Culshaw
of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Yup, 34 boats!
Aweigh We Go in morning mist
Naming boats is hit or miss
I swear before we end this day
I’ll choose a name, Come What May
Good Captain, sit down, tie yourself to the mast
I’ve chosen a name for this vessel at last
I christen her Moondance; that is her name
If people don’t like it, I’ll take the blame
Choosing this name did not come with ease
You haven’t exactly been easy to please
But “Moon” as a nickname gives us a way
To honor your sister, that rag bagger Kay
Whose face was round and full of light
Especially when sailing the waters so bright
And when you’re ready to sell her come some future June
You can announce to your broker “I’m over the Moon!”
