Sailors are a notoriously superstitious lot - even if some won't admit
it. Years of taking to the water, at the mercy of uncontrollable (and
sometimes deadly) forces, have led even the wisest to seek ways of
influencing the gods or fate. From bad omens and odd rituals to lucky
tokens and forbidden words, the superstitions of the sea are legion.



Many of these superstitions have refused to go away and quite a few have entered the general public consciousness.
Some are amusing in their own right, others have fascinating origins,
whilst for many there are bizarre anecdotal incidents which would
appear to lend credence to these arcane beliefs.



Illustrated with quirky cartoons, this book explores nautical
superstitions from all over the world in an informative yet
entertaining way.



Includes superstitions about: Boatbuilding, naming and launching; Lucky
and unlucky dates to sail; People, things and animals not to let on
board; Signs and portents at sea; Words not to say (and their
alternatives); Predicting the weather; Fishing; and much, much more.
