Christening ceremony - for new or changing a boat's name.

#1 Post by badmoonrising » Thu Apr 05, 2012 6:03 am

The Official BMR christening ceremony.

Requirements:

1. Boat.
2. Captain.
3. First Mate (if ok with topless women, otherwise let her go shopping).
4. Topless women (King Neptune loves topless women).
5. Booze.
6. Your closest friends, preferably one that can drink and speak at the same time, we'll call him "MC".


Ceremony:
(MC): "We now call on the Captain to Christen the new Vessel"
(Captain): "I name this vessel (name of the boat)"
(1st mate or designated topless woman): "May Neptune Bless her and all who sail with her"
(1st mate or designated topless woman): "May Neptune keep all who sail her safe"
(everyone): "Amen"

Topless women frolic about. Everyone drinks.

(MC): "A Toast to the Captain"
(everyone): "Cheers" (or other toast)
(MC): "A Toast to the (1st mate or designated topless woman) " . Usually, the larger breasted of the bunch.
(everyone): "Cheers!" (or other toast)
(MC): "A Toast to (name of the boat)"

Topless women frolic about. Everyone drinks.

(Captain): "A toast to everyone present! Thank you for coming today and in joining us in this very specially occasion!" Fairwinds to all!
(everyone): "Cheers!" (or other toast).

Topless women frolic about. Everyone continues to drink.


(Captain then takes his boat for a cruise for the first time, it is usually best that the Captain takes her out single handed, or with the topless women).



End of ceremony!

Do this and your vessel shall forever see fair winds and calm seas. :drink4 :thumbsup

I figured this needed to be stickied. Don't want to upset Poseidon by not having boat owners not following proper protocol. :rofl :rofl

Isn't there something about renaming a boat that goes like this...

you drive the boat backwards and ask Neptune to remove the name of the boat from his records, and thank him for previous safe passages - Topless women back into all the men on board - and a bit of booze is poured into the water as an offering to Neptune - Topless women continue to back up and grind - simulating the erasure in Neptune's books - into the men till the boat is safely docked so the "naming" ceremony (as previously posted) can commence.

The name of my boat is "De Bonte Koe", Dutch for The Spotted Cow. My family arrived April 15, 1660 on a sailing ship by that name.

There were no cows in my boat christening--or even topless heavy breasted women.

In the Celtic version, substitute Manannan mac Lir for Neptune, and triple the topless wimmin frolicking about, and I think it ought to work. :drink

Having recently purchased my 'toon from an elderly woman who knew nothing about naming boats,
I pondered over whether to let it slide, or appropriately put a fashionable name to her....after
consulting with my youngest son, and the bottle of British Navy Pusser's West Indies Rum; it
was decided to name her after my wife, and her love for the lake.

So, with bottle in hand, and our official British Navy painted tin drinking cup, we stood on the
fore deck, and christened her "Laura's Leisure" - being very careful not to spill (waste) any of
the rum on the carpet.

Following the ceremony, and while her namesake was busy ashore, young son (39) and I took
a turn around the lake in the newly christened 'toon.

She will be duly lettered in the next few weeks.

Lettering now done and applied:

....and I've got to find a source for that rum....other than going back to Tortola .... :drink

I need to rename my boat... Any suggestions?

I was watching the great outdoors last night and they had a boat called "Suck my wake" which I thought would be funny.

I was also thinking about "Please Start"??
