Stus-List Renaming ceremony

Despite its longstanding use in maritime history, I was warned early on to never name a boat a woman’s name. For example, someone I knew named his boat after his girlfriend Diana, and was then prompted over the season by his boating buddies with the following questions:

"How many men can Diana take?"
"How wide is Diana?"
"Can you sleep on Diana?"
"Is Diana fast?"
"Can Diana handle a good blow?"
"How far can Diana go?"
"Is Diana hard to control?"
"Is it difficult to get Diana out of a slip?"
"Is Diana overheating?"
"Will you loan Diana to a friend?"
and, my favorite,
"Will you put Diana on the hard this winter or keep her wet?"

All the best,

Renaming my new (to me) 1988 Landfall 39 on Friday. Significant Other will be stricken from Poseidon's records, and I will ask him to watch over all that sail on Rebecca Leah (after my daughters) from here on out. My daughter's will be at the ceremony and then a nice sail out on Puget Sound.  
I hope I haven't jinxed everything by posting this early. 
Just had the denaming ceremony. Lots of champagne both for us and the gods.
