Bad luck to have a woman aboard too. Can't sail on a Friday or a Sunday. Changing the name of a ship is also bad luck. Can't think of any more at the moment.... Some will come to me.... Another saying; "Cold enough to freeze balls off a brass monkey" was something to do with cannon balls in a frame ( brass monkey?) that contracted in the extreme cold and the cannon balls fell out and rolled away... May be wrong on that..
Let the world flood! I live on a boat!
Whoever came up with the idea that having a woman on a boat was bad luck must have batted for the other side. The more women the better I say.
