Boats, Their Names And Why

A unique kaleidoscope picturesque portrayal of boats and yachts to include the ritual in many cases of the soul searching and family tradition experience of the naming process. A "MUST READ" for all Boat Enthusiasts!

"Curiosity" is the "keyword" that sparked the origin and commitment of putting pen to paper to result in the end product- this book. After noticing for the first time, a multitude of named boats moored in a popular Fort Myers, Florida Marina; a paining "curiosity" emerged to ask the skippers "why?" a particular boat name was chosen in a few unique and unusual cases. After that experience, the overwhelming and almost paralyzing thought was unlimited and vast inventory existed in type of captain, type of boat, and type of story. Some stories were "dead" serious while others resulted from just a frivolous whim at a given moment. Personalities, looks and style flavored the mix and invigorated the desire further. What a "great" short story and photo opt idea! This seemed an "ideal read" for sitting by the pool or a late night adventure. A few more times of asking avid owners and this book evolved; almost uncontrollably. Later, while watching a Siamese cat sneak and inch her way cautiously close to my two nieces, Isabel and Katie, and then run backwards a few steps as they slowly approached; finally skedaddling off entirely; I was reminded of the "curiosity" I can't shake off with each encounter when approaching a boat; any boat.-they are all included here-each indispensable in its own way. "Curiosity" is not killing this cat- it's brought her back to life!
