Jimmy Buffett Boat

Any good Jimmy Buffet lines that would make a good name for a boat?

So I've got the perfect lazy Saturday boat and I want to give it a clever name that follows a Jimmy Buffett theme. Right now the best thing we've come up with is "5 O'Clock Anywhere" but thats a little too obvious. Any suggestions?

I would like to implore you to choose a different basis for the name. Preferably something utterly unexpected; the planet is full of Jimmy Buffett boats.

...having said that, if I can't convince you to go with "Thrillho" or "Insuperable Twilight" or the like: Incommunicado.

Right now I'm liking Incommunicado and Havana Day Dreamin but like Aramaic said, it's not as unique as I'd prefer.

Let me expand my theme to pretty much anything that would fit snuggly in the Jimmy Buffett / Caribbean Island life theme. I'm picturing cruising on the boat out to a deserted island with a pitcher of Margarita and a hammock.

if you plan to spend much time in the caribbean, you'll find the jimmy buffet theme is pretty much played out to the nth degree.

that said, how about:

salt and lime

Since boats are referred to as "she," how about A Woman To Blame? (from the "Margaritaville" lyrics)

Not a Buffett line, but "Archimedes Principle" would be a cool name, as would "Eureka," which, of course is what the nakes Archimedes ran around shouting while naked when he developed his principle.

But to give you an obligatory Parrothead suggestions,

"Desperation Samba"
"Pascagoula Run" or
"Jolly Mon"

Stupid lack of proofreading. Archimedes was never nakes.

If JB is really played out to the Nth degree in the Caribbean, perhaps you could find Mr. Buffet and attempt to scare him. Perhaps he will scream something and you can quote him on your boat.

A Parothead friend of mine suggests:

The Hemisphere Dancer or perhaps Strange Bird. Or simply "A1A" might do it.

In Jimmy Buffett's book Where Is Joe Merchant?, Frank's plane is the Hemisphere Dancer and Desdemona's houseboat is the Cosmic Muffin.

Awesome as it is, I don't think you can go with Hemisphere Dancer, because that is already the name of Jimmy's own plane. My favorite so far is "Occupational Hazard", that is great. Here are some Buffett related things I could see naming a boat:

St. Somewhere
Cabin Fever
Misdemeanor Craziness (from "If it All Falls Down" - thats a pretty deep reference, only the real Buffett fans would probably get it, but I like it even without the Buffett context)
Port of Indecision
Lovely Cruise

Wouldn't fit on the transom. But this would, and it would be wonderfully esoteric:
