I'm leaning toward either "Atlas Gagged" or " I.P. Freely"
Any other ideas out there from the fellow fools?

Kayser Soze's Farkin' Boat
You guys are all great, but cato's "Kayser Soze's Farkin' Boat" made beer come out my nose!
Boats are a waste of money.
Why not name it for the special woman in your ancestry? Your great, great grandmother, perhaps? There is a longstanding tradition of naming boats after women.
I used to have a huge Buick Estate Wagon with the faux wood paneling. Since she was a land barge I named her The Lady Rose after English King Henry VIII's flag ship.
I like Lemon's idea. Graley's Granny has a nice ring to it. ;)
Sorry about the waste of beer, Chris.
Fool Me Twice
(as in "Fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me")
How about "Ballz Deep" after all the money you will spend on it.
Dad once told me if i thought i needed a boat to spend a weekend in a tub 1/2 full of water and flush $100 bills down the toilet. He said if i had fun doing that to buy a boat.
I have had 2 boats since then and still have one now--can't take those $100 bills with ya
I might have it!
"Who is John Gault?"
Has a nice ring to it doesn't it?
How about the 'Fargin Icehole'
#16 - Roman Moronie approves.
A friend's family almost named theirs "Bow Movement"
- Anand (TMFBomb)
"When the times get tough, the tough.. flee"
"Don't ask what you can do for your country"
To keep with the tradition of naming boats after women -
Let us know what you decide. You will need to have a whole fleet to use all the names:)
"Checkmate" " En Passant" "Castling"
If you have played even only 1 game of chess you know that pawns have some special rules. For example, they can only capture a piece that is placed diagonally in front of them. Also, on it's initial move, a pawn can move up two squares instead of just one. However, there is a special case for this - if an enemy pawn could have captured it had it only moved 1 square, the enemy is still able to capture.
This move is called 'en passant' and can only be used on the very next move after the pawn is advanced 2 spaces - if you do not capture then, you cannot do it at a later move. TS
The King can make a special chess move called 'castling' and it is, in fact, recommended that you do this during the opening phase of the game. This is a defensive move which increase thesafety of the King. Castling has two forms - 'short' and 'long'. Here's how it works:
Say the white King is on e1 with the white Rook on h1 (this is the initial setup at the start of the game). You can make the move called short castling by moving the King to g1 and the Rook to f1. This move does have some restrictions - the squares in between the Rook and King must be empty, neither the Kind or Rook can have been moved before and the King cannot be in check. Note that even though you move two pieces, this is considered to be one move.
Long castling has the same rules and is a similar move but uses the Rook on the a file instead. In this scenario, the King ends on c1 and the Rook ends on d1. TS
"Major Que Nada"
Easy. Call it "Goldman Sachs" ... then you know the government will never let it go down. Plus you can do god's work apparently...
I don't know you, but here are a few that come to mind...
If you are like me and like to raise some trouble from time to time, especially with fellow boaters... it could be ... "F... Jimmy Buffet"... I was going to say "F... Buffet", but that might get taken the wrong way on this site.
Depending on your investment thesis perhaps "Elliot's Wave". Or "SS Dividend".
And lastly "Homewrecker" but that one requires too much explanation.
