Men have named their boats since that ancient day when they first figured out that you could carve out a log and go kayaking.
My favorite boat names tend to be some combination of cleverness, simplicity, honest insight, playfulness or meaning:
Or our boat name. "Espiritu."
I like it. It means "spirit" in Spanish. It's meaningful, but it's not too corny. And even though it's in a foreign language, you can figure out what it means even if you don't speak Spanish. It's optimistic, but not pompous or ridiculous.
In my humble opinion, "Espiritu" is juuuuuuuust right.
