What's in a name?

Rachel came up with the Stardust name. Kathy and I like it because it has an all encompassing connotation, like "we are stardust" or all things come from stardust. Once we hit the open sea, we'll see so many stars that it will appear to be stardust. Several songs come to mind, such as Stardust (Hoagy Carmichael), Stardust Memories (Willie Nelson), and Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie). Seems to us that CSN&Y also sang "we are stardust, we are golden..." Can't remember the song title. We'll keep our ears out for more songs.
Our Hunter 450 was originally owned by Dr. Kurt Mikat who named it "Meine Katze" which we're sure worked well for him. He had it in the Great Lakes for two years before moving to Florida. Then the hurricanes arrived, and he apparently lost interest in owning a boat in this area. Don't blame hime. So it sat neglected for a couple of years in the corner of a boatyard waiting for us to come along. We couldn't be happier!

Those lyrics are from "Woodstock" on the CSN&Y album Deja Vu. The song was written by Joni Mitchell.
Good Sailing!

Dear Lees,
Great name for a sailboat. After seeing the boat, I can see that it really fits it.
Your admirer,
