I have two partners on the boat, and the name carried over from their older boat (34 Atlantic). The partners grandfather, when fishing with them when they were kids, would always say, "right in the basshole", after each cast. Their grandfather wanted to name his boat, "Basshole", but grandma would not allow it. So in his honor, they named their boat. "Basshole". The name grew on me, and I would not change it, even if my partners agreed to a change.

I recently sold my skiff "Payin Dues." No matter how great of worker, fisherman, boat you own,... I feel like you have to pay your dues before anything is handed to you in life. I plan on naming my next boat the "Payin Dues II" and so on. Until I retire and buy my dream ride, then I am going to name it "Dues Paid"

Well shit, here it goes. My oldest niece had a baby girl and she only lived 18 days due to S.I.D.S (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
At the service my niece said with tears "I'm afraid that since she was only with us for 18 days that no one will remember her"
I then vowed that it would never happen.. So my unnamed boat became "Lillian May"
R.I.P.

Houdini

First trip to Catalina all the moorings at the Isthmus were full so we anchored up at about 9 am. Sat on the pic for 4 hours and didn't move at all. Had the anchor alarm on. Went in to grab some lunch and a beer at Harbor Reef for less than an hour. My friends inflatable was side tied to us as well. Some dumbass dragged our anchor line and off went our boat around the corner towards Avalon. I have a strong feeling it was the 2 shitfaced yahoo's trying to set their anchor for over an hour in their disaster of a boat. Jumped on a my friends 13' whaler to head back out and it was gone. No one saw it, sheriff, harbor patrol, other boaters, no one. Found it at past Blue Cavern anchored up in a small cove in a perfect spot with the inflatable still side tied to it. We got real lucky the pic re-set. Named it Houdini for the disappearing act it pulled and the fact that we like to disappear on it and head to the islands.

By boat is called Sea Hawg.
I won a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle in our fire department 9/11 raffle. I don't ride bikes (too dangerous). I've taken too many bike riders to the trauma center or covered them with a yellow plastic blanket in my career. So, I sold the bike and used the money to buy a fishing boat. So, no road hawg, but a Sea Hawg.

Plus, I can take my buddies fishing on my boat, but that would look really gay to have them on the back of my bike!
