WHY IS A SHIP CALLED SHE?
A ship is called a ‘she’ because there is always a great deal of bustle around her;
There is usually a gang of men about,
She has a waist and stays;
It takes a lot of paint to keep her good looking;
It is not the initial expense that breaks you, it is the upkeep;
She can be all decked out;
It takes an experienced man to handle her correctly;
And without a man at the helm, she is absolutely uncontrollable.
She shows her topsides, hides her bottom and, when coming into port, always heads for the buoys.
