>"Zevulun" is named after a lost tribe of Israel.  At least, that's 
what I've discovered so far.  They probably weren't lost, they just 
went sailing in the Dead Sea and became, well, "dead."  At any rate if 
I keep Zevulun, which is up for sale, I'm going to rename the 
boat "Njord" after the Norse god of wind and sea.  Njord had women 
problems.  He was married to the Norse goddess of the mountains.  She 
didn't like the sea and he didn't like heights.  They ended up 
separating.  My name, Bailey, is derived from the Norse "Bailleou."  
I've been through 3 divorces.  Carl Alberg was Scandinavian.  All those 
things seem to make the name Njord very appropriate.
