I was the engineer on that boat in the late 80's. We ran the sh*t out of it, lol. At the time it was the fastest conventionally powered yacht, ie: diesel/props. I even water skied behind it one day just for laughs, the wake was over my head We also did an episode of Miami Vice, the hot show back in the day.

Oh, I forgot Downeaster Alexa, which often chokes me up missing Long Island Sound. That's a good one too.

And then there's anything Carly Simon sang at her live concert at Martha's Vineyard in 1987, but those aren't really boat songs per se.

Not exactly the question asked - a derivation of it.


We used to own a boat named "At Last"...


The boat had its own theme song - the Etta James version of the song.


Was our favorite song at the end of a day during debriefing of the day...

Just listened to this again and was reminded how much I like it. It was written and performed by my friend Eric Stone as the theme song for our Latitudes & Attitudes TV show. It has one of my favorite lines of all time: "Paradise is not a place, it's a state of mind". He even mentions tugs and trawlers in the song...

If you've never heard it, give it a listen. It's a very catchy tune!

Not completely Nautical but "Cortez the Killer", the Lyrics:


"He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wondered
With the secrets of the worlds."


the visual image of that has stuck with me my whole life...to dance across the water, and find new lands with hidden (to me) secrets...


and of course Submarines by the Lumineers is pretty cool

Home run, Hogwash. Brings back a picture of my youngest son (about 7-8) at the conn of a sailboat while running from Bohicket to Charleston with Kokomo playing in the background. He could just about see over the wheel. Good times!

Yeah, that one too, but

BTW, Kthoennes and I just figured out that we knew each other in Grad School. I also recall attending his wedding.

K9. I think there is a wee bit of Pirate in all of us! So let's ship up to Boston and have a pint and some rum!

Cheers.

How 'bout Baby Beluga? Special for PNW cruisers as Raffi lives on Saltspring Island, where you might meet him at the Saturday Market, as we did this year.
