Why is a yacht called 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 and creams to keep her looking good, 
it is not the initial expense that breaks you, it is the upkeep,
it takes an experienced man to handle her correctly and
without a man at the helm, she is absolutely uncontrollable.
She shows topsides, hides her bottom and, when coming
into port, always heads for the buoys.........
