That's the reason why Columbus sailed the seven sea...I guess it goes back hundreds of years ago, when Columbus discovered America. They all used to name their boats The Nina, Pinta, & Santa Maria
Way before auto's and snowmobiles were around
They are usually named after women, the reason for that is, most boats are owned by guys and what guy is going to name his boat a name like Sir Gary, or Mr Todd. Its just not going to happen. and Just like a women boats give us some pleasure but they like women cost a fortune to do that . Only a boat can't speak. As for the cars some cars are named. Mostly race cars like the general lee. or trucks like bigfoot. Nobody is going to give a name to there 2004 honda civic . or there 1998 ford tempo.My 4 year old daughter asked me why we name the boat and not the cars, snowmobile, 4 wheeler...... I didn't really have a great answer for her.:huh: I'm sure it's just the first of many.
