Description - The Art of Boat Names by Laurie Churchman

Shouldn't your boat's name look as distinctive as your boat? A well-chosen and well-designed name on a transom or topsides is the finishing touch and creates the ultimate first impression for any boat. Your boat's name is the single most highly visible clue to your nautical interests and sensibilities. Whether the name is whimsical (Y-Knot), classical (Terpsichore), irreverent (Aquaholic), mythical (Valkyrie), sly (For Sail), romantic (Wayfarer), or full of attitude (Bite Me), it won't communicate your message without an effective design. Choose the lettering and graphic style that best expresses your boating aspirations and personality. Communicate your choices to a letterer, vinyl lettering shop, or a designer. Browse 1,500 boat names and explore resources for expanded research. Take a visual tour through the history of boat naming and across a seascape of boat transoms and topsides. Work with hand-painted, gold-leaf, vinyl or lighted display lettering.
