Salty toasts

Anybody have any good salty toasts?
Here's a few:
Fair winds and following seas

The wind that blows, the ship that goes, And the lass that loves a sailor

Ho! stand to your glasses steady! 'Tis all we have left to prize.
A cup to the dead already. Hurrah for the next that dies.

I need to get some good ones--Buccaneer Days is approaching fast!

flyingwelshman will become famous soon enough
The Royal Navy has a number of specific toasts which are used on each day of the week. It is the job of the newest officer or midshipman to propose them. Traditionally they are given no help and should they forget then they should buy drinks for all those present.

Monday:Our ships at sea.

Tuesday: Our men.

Wednesday: Ourselves (as no-one else is likely to concern themselves with our welfare).

Thursday: A bloody war or a sickly season.

Friday: A willing foe and sea room.

Saturday: Sweethearts and wives (may they never meet).

Sunday: Absent friends.

The guy who first used it (in front of me) was guy who had "wrung more saltwater out of his socks than I had sailed through.." !

Bottoms up to your drink but never to your boat
