Saw this thought it was good and wanted to share it with you


A ship is called "SHE" because
There is always a great deal of bustle about her;
There is always a gang of men about;
She has a waist and stays;It takes a lot of paint to keep her looking good;
Its not the initial expense that breaks you
its the upkeep!

She can be 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 to port,always heads for the bouys.

what do you reakon girls and boys

Sue,

My old Aston called Martha is a female because:

She never goes where I want her to go, especially in reverse

She costs me a fortune

I am somehow drawn to her even when she's being a pain

She takes an age to get ready to go out, oils grease etc.

I spend more time with her than I do my mates.

Good Post Sue Smile

Regards

Paul H
