When I first acquired ‘Minnow’ I was doubtful about retaining her name. Her second owner had given it to her. I preferred it to the original one, which was ‘Enuf’.
At first, I couldn’t generate much enthusiasm for keeping the name, but I’ve not come up with a better one; therefore I’ve stuck with it. Another reason for calling her ‘Minnow’ is that the online Paradox sailboat community would appear to know her best by her second name.
Thinking about it, ‘Minnow’ is not a bad name for a tiny boat, on account of a minnow being a small fish.
As confirmation of my acceptance of her name, I’ve applied vinyl lettering to that effect on both sides of her bow. She is now, irrevocably, ‘Minnow’.
There is no reason for a naming ceremony, but all the same, may God bless her, and all who sail in her. Amen.
