Re: Sailing specific songs

Keep 'em coming. But "boat" has to imply sailboat in the song or it doesn't qualify. If I'm playing it from the cockpit and a nearby stinkpotter start to get all jiggy with it, it will be a failure.

There are some great songs here, Gdad, but I'm looking for sailing and sailors. Edmond was a stinkpotter, RIP. Water, beaches, Sea, Ocean, don't qualify.

Bring on the Sailing folks !!!!!!

p.s. I just went out and bought a half gallon of Mt. Gay Rum to remind me of summer.
