Re: Sailing specific songs

Wow, those were great, especially the Shiver Me Timbers. Took me back to 5 years of age when asked what I wanted to be I said "A beach bum". But that was before I discovered sailboats. Sinbad was my hero. Scheherazade my favorite music, even today.
I knew a guy in LA in the 60's that had a full reel (remember reel to reel?) of old sailing ditties. One I remember begins "Hoist the sails me hardies, and water the decks with brine, bend to the oars you lousy (rhyme needed here), the rest gets worse.
I remember others, but that was the nicest one.
