Naming your boat (whether it’s a new yacht or a used boat) can make you feel like a real captain! Many people name it after family members or even after the profession or investment that helped them purchase the boat in the first place. To get your wheels turning, we’ve compiled a list of the most popular boat names of 2011.

Remember, though, that boat lore dictates if you rename an already-named boat, you need to christen it and sprinkle some champagne to the wind over the bow of the ship! (More on a complete renaming ceremony in a later post.)

So, without adieu, here are the top ten boat names of 2011!

  1. Serenity
  2. Happy Ours
  3. Feelin’ Nauti
  4. Family Time
  5. Liberty
  6. Black Pearl
  7. Andiamo
  8. Knot On Call
  9. High Maintenance
  10. Just Chillin

Happy Ours, Feelin’ Nauti, and Serenity are repeats from recent years.

Hope that gets your gears turning and gives you some fresh ideas! Or, perhaps, does it whet your appetite for a new or used boat?

Cummins Marine Diesel: Among Cleanest Burning in World

| Marine Blog | August 29, 2011

687200cummins

COLUMBUS, IN – Cummins (NYSE: CMI) announced that the company exceeded its 25 percent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction commitment upon completion of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Leaders Program.

Companies in the Climate Leaders Program complete a corporate-wide inventory of their GHG emissions based on a quality management system, set aggressive GHG emissions reduction goals, and report their progress annually to the EPA.
Cummins joined the program in 2006 and set the goal of a 25 percent reduction of GHG emissions per dollar revenue from 2005 to 2010. As of year-end 2010, the Company achieved a 28 percent reduction in GHG emissions.

“Cummins strongly believes in the business case for climate change actions,” said Dr. John Wall, Vice President and Chief Technical Officer. “It is good business, good for our business, and it is the right thing to do. Meeting our goal not only has been good for the environment, it saves Cummins more than $20 million dollars annually.”

“We have created a culture and structure for energy efficiency that is now part of how we do business,” said Ignacio Garcia, Vice President and Chief Manufacturing Officer. “Our global energy efficiency team has implemented nearly 300 energy efficiency capital projects across seven specific energy themes, with an average return on investment of 50 percent. In addition to implementing capital projects, we have trained a broad network of Energy Champions who coach and mentor site Energy Leaders to find and implement low and no-cost energy projects that also save money for their sites.”

The company’s wide-ranging energy savings actions have included projects such as high-efficiency lighting upgrades, power management systems, energy efficient motors, pumps and fans, compressed air optimization, heating and cooling equipment upgrades, and energy recovery from engine test cells. Energy efficiency is also incorporated in Cummins’ global environmental management system, implemented at 69 sites around the world and the key mechanism for driving environmental improvements at Cummins facilities.  We are proud to have a brand like Cummins in our rotation of products. And keep in mind, if you want to buy, sell, or trade marine products BuyMarine.com is a great classified advertising resource that will save you money and create mass exposure for your items.

It’s easy. It just takes is a little preparation and your boating trip will be remembered for all the right reasons. Here are some essential tips.

Make sure your boat has the proper safety equipment for everyone on board. That means a properly-fitted life vest for everyone on board.

     

     

    • Bring along lots of snacks tough enough to survive being tossed about during the day. Think sliced apples and carrot sticks over tender fruits. Pringles in their sturdy can are a great option. Anything in a hardy container is a great choice.
