HAT TIME Renaming Ceremony May 27, 2005
"For thousands of years, we have gone to sea. We have crafted vessels to carry us and we have called them by name. These
ships will nurture and care for us through perilous seas, and so we affectionately call them "she." To them we toast, and ask
to celebrate Hat Time"
Then everybody raises their plastic glass filled with champagne and shouts,
"TO THE SAILORS OF OLD…TO HAT TIME"
Everybody takes a sip.
"The moods of the sea are many, from tranquil to violent. We ask that this ship be given the strength to carry on. The keel is
strong and she keeps out the pressures of the sea."
Again the glasses are raised, and the assemblage shouts,
"TO THE SEA...TO THE SAILORS OF OLD...TO THE SEA!"
Everybody takes another sip.
"Today we come to name this lady HAT TIME, and send her to sea to be cared for, and to care for the MICHAEL AND
EXTENDED FAMILY. We ask the sailors of old and the mood of God that is the sea to accept HAT TIME as her name, to help
her through her passages, and allow her to return with her crew safely. "
Again, with the raising of the glasses,
"TO THE SEA...TO THE SAILORS BEFORE US...TO HAT TIME"
A last, long sip by all.
Now pour champagne over the bow to appease King Neptune, and lay a branch of green leaves on the deck to ensure safe
returns
