OK, I am thinking of actually naming my boat. It came to me about a week ago. I was listening to a little Rob Zombie and I thought, "thats it, DRAGULA, now THERE is a name for a ski boat." get it, DRAGula.....? so I was thinking of putting on the back of the boat in small graphic letters. kind of a old english font. that was the name of Grandpa Munsters race car he built out of a casket to wim the family car back that Herman lost at the race track to Eddie's friends dad that was a pro drag racer. thats where Zombie got the idea for the song. I thought it was a good ski boat name.

What you think?? Lets do a poll. I am open to all your opinions, let em fly!!!

Dragula is a pretty sweet name. I like it. We've been kicking around a few names of our own. Our last name is Ocheskey - we've been stuck on this name - O-BoardSki. A little cheesy, I know.

It is your boat, so do what you want. I voted for option 3 because I would hate to deface my MC....But then my wife has a tatoo so I really can't talk :smile: If you do add it, just make sure you do it right. I would have a pro paint it on, not some cheezy stickers. :twocents:

01-24-2006, 11:51 AM
If there was an option for "do what you want" I would have chosen that. I don't think a small name on the back of your boat is a big deal. The reason I chose pick a better name is - I did not get what Dragula meant until you explained it and even after that it didn't mean much, even though I watched a lot of the Monsters growing up.

Its not going to be cheezy stickers, I mean I am going to have a professional graphics place design the letters and apply them. But it will be small, on the back somewhere. I really dont like the idea of painting it. that does scare me. I wont do that. If I do put it on there, its gonna be with vinyl letters by a pro graphic shop. Now, what I am mainly testing here is if people get the concept of DRAGula, you know as a ski boat name. I that the Drag part was kinda neat for a ski boat. anyway, I have about 4 months to decide this, so I am not in a rush.

Ultimatley, I alone will make the decision. But I like to get feedback from people first before I do things like that. I am just that way. sometimes I choose the opposite of what everyone tells me to do, just because I truly believe in it. Other times, I end up agreeing with them, and follow their advice. so I dont always follow what people tell me to do. I will decide in the end. I am just getting vibes from you and my freinds first. Its how I operate.

I say do what you want. I've thought about putting AirJunky on mine..... even peeled all the other crap off it to make it happen. Then I decided I liked the clean look, no advertisements on my ride.
My brother had one a few years ago that said it & everyone loved it. Makes it unique. http://airjunky.com/temp/bill4.jpg

Calling it "the Mastercraft" is pretentious in my book. Doesn't say much when there are 1,000 other Mastercrafts on the lake.

ump, your poll is flawed..... There is no option for:
" I couldn't care less if you name your boat "

Take this advice from someone who knows a thing or two about flawed polls. :o


OK, I am thinking of actually naming my boat. It came to me about a week ago. I was listening to a little Rob Zombie and I thought, "thats it, DRAGULA, now THERE is a name for a ski boat." get it, DRAGula.....? so I was thinking of putting on the back of the boat in small graphic letters. kind of a old english font. that was the name of Grandpa Munsters race car he built out of a casket to wim the family car back that Herman lost at the race track to Eddie's friends dad that was a pro drag racer. thats where Zombie got the idea for the song.

Hey Erk! thanks for asking! Well, I have been wrestling with this name thing for a while now. I am really having a difficult time slapping a decal on that boat. I guess I had a surge of inspiration with "dragula" when I posted here, but after some thought, I dont think people will understand it, and I will have to explain it to everyone wich is a pain. I like the name, but I really think that names can be corny too. I guess it boils down to this: If I am having this much of a conflict with it in my head, it cant be a good idea. You should feel 100% good about it to do it. I dont. I dont wanna do something I am half-hearted about. It dont feel right to me, so I think its best left alone. I do agree after further thought that Mastercrafts really dont need names. My buddy was right(and many of you here were too) last spring when he said, "dont name it, it already says everything it needs to on the back".

Thats the scoop Erkle. So whatcha think???
