We have been houseboating for 15 years. Our first boat was
named Blue Monday because we were Blue on Monday going back to reality each
week. When we sold Blue Monday and
bought a bigger boat, we struggled naming the new one. Blue Monday had been our
identity for nine years, and often used the name Blue Monday as passwords at
work. One day at work my coworker needed my password. He asked if that was our
boat name and I explained the story and said we were at a loss for a new name.
He simply said Fat Tuesday. It happened to be Fat Tuesday that day and the name
fit perfect. The boat is bigger, fatter
and every day it feels like Fat Tuesday as we eat, drink and have fun with
friends. We currently adopted the MardiGras theme with new green, purple and
gold paint, and pass out beaded necklaces to all our fellow guests. The
"Day" theme has already inspired our next boat name: Hump Day.
