How did The Spindrift get its name?
Spindrift is the foam that is cast in the wake of a ship  as it cuts through the water. According to an interview with Stefan Arngrim, Kurt Kasznar was the one who first came up with the name. The actors were all sitting around one day and Kasznar said that the ship should have a name; all sorts of ridiculous names were brought up, but Kasznar produced the winner.

The name stuck - everyone started to call it that until the writers began to put it in the scripts. According to Arngrim, stuff like that used to happen a lot on the show. FYI, I noticed mention of the name as early as the 4th episode, Underground, though that was the 11th one produced.
