    How about a little backround on the boat and you guys? If I recall, you purchased way down south.

    "Wet Dream" is the name of just about every other boat on the water! Please not another one.

    Do you have any pics of the boat? Pretty tough to pick/suggest a name without seeing her first. Oh yeah, amd I completely agree with spoiledone, please not another "Wet Dream". Hmm, that just sounds wierd!

    I went Northern Belle, if I would have voted Andera Kay but I misread it thinking it was Andrea Kay and that reminded me of the name of the boat in the Perfect Storm.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want others to help name your boat?

    Thanks all so far. yes we bought the boat in Florida and are completing a restoration on it. We currently have it in Washington. Will use it down there for awhile before bring her home.

    I think "wet dream" is out.

    I always thought "She said YES" would be a great name .... but after the first few years that changed to "High Maintenance" ... It turned out to be "Rubber Ducky" not my choice but appropriate ....

    Well given her origin, how about "Southern Comfort"?

    I like Northern Belle.

    Bad luck to name a boat after a woman, but so is changing the name, so maybe the 2 would cancel each other out???

    Ditto the Northern Belle.
    If I may add some ideas to the mix:
    "Catching Rays" or "Catch Some Rays" its a Sea Ray after all.
    Or "X-Ray-Ted" Lame, I know...

    Its bad luck to name a boat after a woman? Then theres a lot of boats hexed cause most I know of are named after a woman. Wet Dream is as generic as it gets, theres already 3 boats I know of w/ that name and one is notorious w/ Fish & Feathers

    Man there are so many names.... What do you wanna do with it?

    "Glacier Ray"
    "Captain n' Coho" (coho whritten in the same script as the Coke logo)
    "Sea Lie'n"

    Of the ones you list I lean toward Northern Belle.

    Our family just sold our 30' bayliner, the "fishin mission". How about "aleshia". I just saw that boat in a commercial for chevy, it is based out of Valdez..pretty sweet commercial. Are you going to be mostly cruising or fishing out of it? I might take that into consideration when naming it.
    You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

    No signage or lights! Oversize.
