Voted for my own suggestion, natch.
I also voted for Cygnus, mostly because I'm a Rush fan. Gotta add the "X-1" to the name, though.

Leviathan was the name of an oil tanker that ran over a tiny sailboat in a novel I read back in high school. It's got Bad Ship Name Karma for me, like Titanic or Poseidon.
Much prefer Cygnus, though Makini is a close second. Seems a much more fitting name for a boat than the others.
"Kraken Up?" The trouble with joke names is that the joke will get old long before you get rid of the boat. :)
i like leviathan. The sea monster! yay :) didnt knew about what athelind said :/
but "fearful Symmetry" also sounds good :)
