Naming the boat

My father, Meyer Fink, saved redwood scraps  for many years intending to use them for projects.  After he passed away, my sister arranged for the basement to get cleared out.  The main room was emptied of lumber, but the redwood was tucked away under a bench.  I took this home and used the redwood in my canoe.  My cousin used to call my dad Uncle Mike, and he was Mike to his friends, so I named the boat Mike Fink.  There was a keelboat captain in the early 19th century with the same name, no relation.
