It’s now official, Katana is no more. The new “Registered” name of our Catamaran is…
Although it was never our intention to change our boat’s name, in order to register it we needed to (the name Katana was already in use*). After deliberating for ages on what name to use, Zero To Cruising seemed most appropriate given that it is the name we created on the day we first concocted our cruising plan.
So yes, we will now need to do the official de-naming and then naming ceremonies, which includes much champagne being offered to the gods of the sea and wind. A great excuse for another party!
*For anyone who is looking to register their boat in Canada, be aware that Transport Canada does not search names based solely on spelling. If there is a boat already registered with a name that SOUNDS LIKE the name you want, it will also be disallowed. In our case there was a boat registered by the name of Catana.
