“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.”Right. An explanation we favour, and often relayed to sailors, is that because women carry life, any vessel that can sustain life in an environment where people could otherwise not normally survive or function without her body should, fittingly, have a feminine name. Ships without a name are presumed to be cursed, and thought to be barren.
