Celtic Names

After thirty years of cruising large boats and twenty-two years of owning them, I have cashed out and bought a Flying Scot to sail in tidal rivers where I live. At 55 I have decided to concentrate on sailing rather than maintenance, picnics rather than voyages, and the mooring off our beach rather than slip rent at a marina. This will likely be my last sailboat and I plan on sailing her for a long time. I am looking for a name that connotes a relaxed and joyful final chapter, hopefully with some sort of celtic association. I enjoyed an old thread on here about boat names but did not see any suggestions that spoke to me. The best I can come up with is "Nay Never" or perhaps "No Nay Never" which some of you may recognize as the refrain in the Irish song "Wild Rover" about a young man settling down. As the verse goes: No! Nay! Never! Nay never no more. Will I play the Wild Rover. Nay, never no more.

My choice would be Uisce Beatha. It's Irish for water of life. The english corrupted the pronunciation to "whiskey".[:D] dave boling Huntsville, AL FS3431
