BoatU.S. released its annual list of top 10 most popular boat names, and one newcomer to the list stands out.

"Bail Out, the No. 5 pick, clearly speaks volumes about what's on boaters' minds," BoatU.S. president Nancy Michelman said in a statement. "With today's economic uncertainty, naming a boat Bail Out could indicate that boating is a survival mechanism for the family that will keep them afloat."
