The name Cuajota…whats it mean? (pronounced kwa-hoe-ta)
I have been asked about the name, so I’ll address it here….
Cuajota means nothing actually from what I have been able to find. What I have been told and I am going to run with this because it works for me…
Cuajota is cuban slang for “The four J’s”. The original owner was a Cuban doctor whose wife and 2 kids first names as well as his own first name all began with the letter J…Works for me because in my family, we had 4 J’s as well. My Mom, Dad, me and my sister. My wifes name begins with J and her family has like 7…I said pick your four favorite…lol! If anyone has a clue of what it actually means…drop me a line or leave a comment and let me know!
We thought about changing the name, but according to sea lore, its bad luck to change the name of a boat unless you do a pretty elaborate procedure. After thinking for weeks about a new name, and people from work giving me some very colorful ideas (lol) I have grown to like the current name…its interesting, colorful, and unique. Besides, how many boats named Serenity, Serendipity, Angel, Second Wind, Summer Wind, Wind Dancer, etc. can there be?!
