We’ve been brainstorming for a proper boat name since the day we bought her. Finally, we have one we love:
We see “open range” signs all over our neck of the woods in Colorado (ranchers let their cattle wander over the land, eating whatever wherever). We also see them on our way to Indian Creek. So, firstly, it reminds us of our Colorado home and of Indian Creek and climbing. Secondly, the concept of open / free range reminds us of us – we are on our boat, free to go wherever whenever.
WE are s/v (sailing vessel) FREE RANGE!
Those that didn’t make the cut:
Withershins (we were SO close to making this our boat name. But in addition to meaning counter-clockwise, it also stood for disaster and unluckiness)
Hobo (because we make hobos all the time. And hobos wander about)
Wander-Box (Stephane didn’t like it)
