<em>Mayflower</em>

Mayflower

This is my 18th Mayflower, Mayflower XVIII, a 2007 Sea Ray Sundancer. My first Mayflower was really the very first Sea Ray Sundancer, the 1975 240 Sundancer prototype. I worked at Sea Ray in Phoenix at the time, and the boat had made the rounds of the dealer shows. Being young and single at ...

<em>Sea Knot Tra</em>

Sea Knot Tra

My boat is called Sea Knot Tra. It pays homage to Frank Sinatra, and since I’m a big Frank fan, I thought it would be appropriate. My very good friend, Tony Yannone, who is a bigger fan of Frank Sinatra than I am, came up with the name. Sea Knot Tra graces the waterways of Chicago — ...

KNOT AN OPTION

When we ordered our new 2007 Island Pilot Fast Trawler, we discovered that the boat came completely outfitted, and we couldn’t think of a single option — hence the name! —Gary Veenstra, Farmington Hills, MI...

KNOTAYACHTYET

After trading in our 1996 22-foot Four Winns Horizon for our current 2001 26-foot Sea Ray Sundancer, the first response from family and friends was, “You bought a yacht!” That prompted our reply, “Not yet,” so with that the boat received its name: KNOTAYACHTYET. But we ho...

<em>@EAZE</em>

@EAZE

We named our boat after our son, Zach. There are many reasons we chose this name. It is a play on his e-mail address, eazyewert@..., it has his initials in it, and we hope that he is in a better place and is at peace. —Tim & Jennie Ewert, Beaverton, MI...

<em>Erie Go Again</em>

Erie Go Again

We couldn’t wait to experience the fun, sun and beauty of Lake Erie’s western basin when we purchased our 2003 Cruisers Yachts 3470 Express. So it was important to make sure the name of our summer weekend home would tell the story as we are leaving West Harbor. Thanks for the great m...

<em>Can't Knot A-Ford Itt</em>

Can't Knot A-Ford Itt

Our 305 Bayliner is our summer weekend retreat in Fair Haven, Michigan. My wife came up with the name with my minor tweak to it. It sure has been a conversation starter at other marinas! (Translation: Can’t Knot A-Ford Itt) — Roy & Cynthia Bartlett, Cottrellville, MI...

Watt Not

The name of our boat is Watt Not, following 10 years in the United States Navy Submarine Force (sinking a perfectly good ship on purpose) and 30 years with an investor-owned utility (now retired). We have slowed down to a trawler’s pace, and the name reflects my retirement from the energy ...
