I have always been told that a boat should be named after your wife. For example, my uncle’s boat the “St. Clair”, which is named after his wife Clair. A boat named after a girl just sounds right…this is my boat isn’t “she” beautiful? But what do you do if you’re not married or the boat has multiple owners? This is exactly the dilema that my friend Terry and the four other owners of their 26′ Bistol sailboat found themselves dealing with.
Terry and his crew have been working to bring the boat back to life for the past three years, work that seems never ending. As soon as one thing gets painted, something else needs to be fixed, sanded and redone.
The boat may not be in the water just yet, but she’s been given one of the best names I’ve ever heard; Chicks Ahoy!
