Boat Name Entry Because my wife did not want to name the boat GROWLER after our lovable dog. The name had to be a play on a nautical term, boom, which we all have become familar with, particularly on smaller boats. Also, the name had to be something easily heard and remembered over the VHF in an emergency, which eliminated any French names.

Comments This boat was originally called 'TOOTSIE III'. As far as I can figure out, the boat was bought it in MI, moved to MN and then later shipped to Florida. It was bought the end of last year by a CA broker who shipped it to Dana Point, CA.

Comments We're a late 50's couple who enjoy weekend overnights & as many longer (3-5 day) trips as possible on the Chesapeake Bay, mostly mid- and Northern Bay. We would like to organize & participate in a trip south, say Norfolk, either mid May or late June, duration around 8 days. We're very happy with our plain vanilla C34, only upgrades beyond AM/FM radio have been cockpit cushions (great for sleeping out) & stern pulpit seats (super visibility around the 150).
