It’s A Naming Party For The Trawler
Today is the big day. The Trawlers naming party. We will be announcing her final colors and name on Monday. The Boatress has a couple favorites and today we can change her mind. maybe. Or just affirm her favorites. Which i have found to be the real gift of a 30 year marriage. So here we go! Type and font color, subject to change.
So what will it be? For comping purposes I used Seafoam to just bang out the options. So it could go either way with many of the names. The Scroll is subject to adjustment.
Buttercup is my favourite, but only if she was Khaki/yellow. If green, then Sweetpea fits….Otherwise, doesn’t it have to be”Boatress”? ( boat made from trees )Got A feeling I’m wrong, though.
I say a Sea Foam Betty B is the right combo, but what do I know? I let a 6 year old name my boat…
Having seen Suzy in person nothing with big or large is proper. If it has a name leave it. I never change a name. If not Suzy B.
Back out plowing snow.
Any of the Boatress related names and sea foam green.
Right Jim- Not Big Suzy.
If Suzy wants to name her after her mom, it’s a done deal! Glad you kept the bow scroll.
I like Boatress,..but maybe;
Seaform! Betty B
I saw nothing wrong with the old name. Because of the bad luck associated w/ a name change, be sure you do the proper ceremony when you do so. You don’t want to anger Neptune.
I like the khaki color scheme, but without the scrolly thing.
Seafoam, Boatress and leave scroll
I’m likin’ BOATRESS or SUZY B. Sea foam, no khaki.
Last One, or Last Won , No More I Promise!
Or how about “LAST ONE IV”?
Seafoam, no scroll, Sweet Pea
I like the idea of the name tying to the history so either Bray option works for me. Maybe “Bray Day” as well.
Being from the northeast I tend to embrace sarcasm, so sticking with the Rice connection how about “RICE ROCKET”!
Stay away from the name BIG SUZY or the real Big Suzy may come visit you on her rice rocket.
Oh, and defiantly sea foam green!
Now that is a stern large enough to put a name on!
Today’s thoughts and images from Troy in no way are indicative of the remainder of the Northeast.
You started the “Boatress” name…and she has not objected…..it is a cool Woodyboater indicative word. Gets my vote.
Otherwise I agree with Dr. Rot.
Thanks for saving that classic no matter the name or color.

Boatress, Suzy B, Betty B or Family Tides. I like Miss Adventure, but bet there are already several others out there. Seafoam, with plenty of the dark green trim like you used in the name ideas today. And the more reserved scroll you posted with the paint ideas the other day.
I think you should have a digital transom and keep changing names to fit your mood like the old “mood rings”.
I’m kinda partial to “The Bray Way” personally. But I also like BettyB.
Sea foam it is, the bay boat theme of first name and initial is cool, so Suzy B, Boatress B, Betty B are all great, Tu-Anne is really good too, and how about Family Tree as a twist on the “Family” names since she’s a wood boat.
Also, a lot of buy boats had full names (first, middle initial, last) so maybe that’s an option too. I like Miss Wicomico as well.
Big Suzy? Did The Boatress come up with that or did you Matt? That’s going to help determine if it’s good or bad.
BOB (boat of Boatress)
If you are sticking with the Pirate Theme, “Black Pearl” always gets some attention.
You guys could then wear pirate type clothing when you dock.
Opens up use of a lot of Pirate talk, modified to Woodyboaterville . “Walk the Plank!”” becomes “Varnish the Plank!”
I am fairly certain that Troy could come up with something that has to do with “Pirate Booty”.
“Family Tradition” is fitting with all the family history and all. But then I am kinda Partial to that name…
If not the “Family Ties”.
Whats wrong with Woody Boater ,you know your going to be selling T shirts, and coffee mugs off the stern . Nothing wrong with self promotion .
“So Sue Me”
Actually like them all, just thought I throw something else at ya.
This is easy….
Bray Way…in Khaki colour.
You’re gonna not like that sea foam green after a few years….also, think of dirt, scuffs, marks, bird stains, etc…khaki is much easier to colour match for those required touch ups….
Trawl and Error
I Trawler Standing There
I like Boatress and Seafoam Green.
What am I always telling you? The boats are named after the wife. And she needs to like it. Ms. Suzy Boatress, I guess it is your call.
Seafoam, Suzy B, Betty B, or Boatress… Whichever she likes the best. You can’t go wrong naming a boat after your wife (or her mother).
Slightly Crewed – That name fits me and my boatress perfectly but a friend already has that name here in the PNW. If the trawler already has a name….surely you will perform all the correct rituals to change the name. Bad bad karma if you don’t.
Whatever name you choose, do not change it without going through the ceremony honoring Poseidon/Neptune and the Gods of the North, South, East and West… Not doing so will invite misfortune!
At 8 knots, how about “Lazy Suzan” (or Suzy). I’m partial to Khaki.
I like boatress and either color but go with the white top either way
I like boatress and either color but go with the white on top either way
I like the name BettyB. It’s a Trawler, Trawlers always have names like that. Besides that its your mother in law. Mabie she will come and help you paint.
No Hurry. And the green color.
An appropriate internet-era name…..
