Incorrigble

adjective: a person not able to be corrected, improved, or reformed.

Back in my sailing days (Maui – 1980-88), I imagined that if I ever owned my own racing yacht, I’d call it “Incorrigible.”  The name has a certain 12-meter / America’s Cup ring to it, not unlike “Intrepid” – the name of the yacht that won the Cup in 1967 and 1970.  

I never did get my own racing yacht.  The yachts I owned and sailed out of Lahaina Harbor were part of a business that had a brand identity that had to be preserved.  

But now I’ve got this pretty cool car, and as part of this whole self-recovery process that I’ve been going through this year, I think I’ve come up with a suitable and appropriate personalized license plate – the closest I could come in just seven letters. .

Sailing aboard the ‘Scotch Mist’ off the coast of Lahaina, Maui – ca. 1982.  
It was a tough life, but somebody had to do it.
