    Been going over possible names for my 17' center console. Kinda got it down to two finalists, but I can't decide.

    "HANA PA'A" is a bit of slang I learned in Hawai'i, it's what the natives say instead of "Fish On," or "Hook Up" (or what have you) when on a fish.

    "KELP KING" should be pretty self-explanatory.

    One of my kids accuses me of cultural appropriation with the first choice. True, I am a total Haole. But at least I'd be using the term in the right context.

    Another accuses me of self-aggrandizement with the second choice. Duh, that's the idea!

    Third kid don't give a s**t what I call it.

    (If my wife got to name it, she'd call it "FOR SALE" :emoji_astonished: )

    I really like HANA PA'A of the two.

    It has more flavor. Cultural appropriation? I'm pretty sure Hawaiians are from earth too.

    I'm not an important person though so my input may only be worth .02 cents

    I'm partial to Hana Pa'a since the 6 pack boat I worked on when I lived on Kauai was named Hana Pa'a.
