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.
