“SHE”

Why A Ship Is Called “SHE”

A ship is called “she” because there is always a great deal of bustle about her; there is usually a gang of men about’,
she has a waist and stays; it takes a lot of paint to keep her looking good;
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.
