A razão de um navio ser designado em língua inglesa de "She" e não  "It".
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 topsides, hides her bottom and when coming intocável port always heads for the buoys.
