Just over three years ago, Mr. Andi bought a boat. At the time, we were living near beautiful Lake Guntersville in north Alabama, and he wanted to fish. A lot. Instead of a bass boat or a fish-and-ski or any of the other typical types of boats that you on Lake Guntersville, Mr. Andi chose a center-console Kenner. His reasoning was that it would be easier for Sarah Kate to walk around, and in the rare instance that we might want to take it with us on vacation, it would be suitable for just off the coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Little did we know that a year later we’d be living near the coast and in need of a deeper-hulled bay boat – a boat exactly like the one he bought a year earlier.
When Mr. Andi first bought the boat, he had to get registration numbers for the sides. Instead of cheap crappy individuals ones that would be a pain to line up exactly on the boat, I went to a local sign store and had a nice set of vinyl ones custom made. Seeing what all the sign store could do (and for not much money) put me in the mood to name the boat. We brainstormed several ideas but never did settle on one (in large part due to the fact that Mr. Andi was less than enthusiastic about naming the boat at all).
This weekend, Mr. Andi was talking about what he’d like to do when he retires (no time soon!), and how if he had his druthers he would have his own fishing show with Nathan (if you’re gonna dream…). I told him he could name it “Son-Down Fishing”. He loved it! Guess who now has a renewed interest in naming the boat?
Let me know what you think.
