Morgan Freeman is the first that comes to mind.

Maybe it is just the characters he plays, but he comes across like a good person, it seems fitting somehow that he would be a sailor.

Errol Flynn, Walter Cronkite, William F. Buckley, Ted Turner, David Crosby, . . . .I think the urban legend is Crosby "forgot" selling his boat (it went up his nose) and wanted to chill out on it when confronted with an intervention by friends, they told him ahhh no David you ahhh sold the boat . . . . .
