'All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by' - Sea Fever by John Masefield.

The sea has a way of getting to you. A siren call that for a lot people is impossible to resist. Once tasted there's no going back. It's a part of you and you it. It's mysterious, vast, beautiful and, yes, dangerous. It commands, nay demands, respect and is no less alluring for it. Being honest, that's probably part of the appeal.
