Charlie’s Angel My wife and daughter chose the name when we were docked in Door County, Wisconsin. Now based in Milwaukee, it still holds true. PS: Love the mag! —Charlie Schlotzhauer, Milwaukee, WI
Overdraft In the late summer of 1999, while taking a Sunday drive, we came across a 1988 Doral named Backdraft. We stopped, we looked, we loved it… and we bought it! As excited as we were that day, we made a commitment to each other about what our next boat’s name would be. Meet our 2012 purchase, Overdraft. —Ralph & Nancy Schlereth, Chatham, ON
Regally Ours We named our boat Regally Ours because we proudly own this 2565 Regal Windows Express. —Ken & Karen Bakstein, Higgins Lake, MI
BOBNAROUND We arrived at the name BOBNAROUND because I’ve traveled each year on the boat for the past 12 years all over the Northeast. We’ve racked up 2,600 hours on our 1998 37' Carver Voyager. Also, my son operates Pack Paddle Ski, an outdoor adventure company. I travel with him all over the world. Last year, we went to India, Nepal and Tibet, and we’ve traveled with three other friends for 30 years on hiking and canoe trips to Alaska, the Everglades, the western mountains, and the desert. My friends are always asking, “Where are you going next?,” and so the name BOBNAROUND was born. —Bob French, Avon, NY
