Porquê "HMS........" na Royal Navy

Arrumando papeis velhos encontrei este que me foi oferecido um oficial inglês.

"Why a SHIP is called SHE?"

A Ship is called a "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 good lot of paint to keep her good looking; it is not the initial expense that breaks you, it is the upkeep; she can be all decked out; it takes an experienced man to handle her correctly; and without a man at the helm, she is absolutely uncontrollable, she shows her ttopsides, hides her bottom and, when coming into port, always heads for the Buoys.
