Chose this name after several buddies kept calling her buckskin, and the rapid on the deschutes.

The 14' NRS is called the Miss Esther after my lovely bride of 25 years. She is with me even when she can't make the river trip.

I inherited my Dad's old aluminum fishing canoe he and his fishing bud's painted "World's Worst Fisherman II" during a walleye fishing and Schlitz drinking trip to Little St. Germain in Wisconsin. I miss those guy's!

My duckies name is La Verkin, after the town in Utah where its maiden voyage was on the Virgin River.

My cousin named his ducky Hauxana Beyulle after the former Russian gold medalist figure skater, not sure why?

Waldo got his name on a Westwater trip...Steve, his owner woke up at midnight one evening to the sinking realization that his mini-me was gone, nowhere in sight. At first light, he was up and out searching. He found his raft floating calmly in an eddy half a mile down river. Ever since, whenever we set up camp, we always ask - Where's Waldo?
Sunny was named for her color, because river trips are always fun with her, and, for her most admirable ability to stay - sunny side up.

Schutzie's favorite names for boats over the years

1)Lonesome polecat (the guy who named it says he didn't know what a polecat was when he chose it, he just liked the name)
2) Osaka Maru (first boat I rowed, but not named by me)
3) Thilly Boat (Kudos if you know where this name came from)
4) Puddle Pirate (name of my SeaRay)
5) Desert Rose (D-9's dory)
6) Buck Me (seen upside down on the North Platte)
7) Pig (Pontoon rowed by a former cop)

My purple Aire is named "The grapes of raft". My brother's boat had a commercial name on it so the ranger at Lee's made him cover it up. He used duck tape to name the boat after his wife. On the same trip in 2011 my nephew was rowing my Riken and we had yet to name it. He had never rowed before but was willing to do it as long as he didn't have anyone else to worry about on the boat. He did great and the only hiccup was when he got dump trucked in Lava. A motor rig pushed the boat to shore at tequila beach. The boat was right side up and he was holding on to the side but not anxious to get out of the water because all he was wearing after his swim was his PFD. That night we christened the boat "Commando".
You had me at 'Hey, Row'

My 14'6 Wing was named the Damp Dream at the factory, but since it has a yellow floor and red tubes, it had the colors of the ketchup packets at McDonalds and it became Fancy Ketchup.
My boys have named our little black shredder the Dark Knight.
