Singing a blues boat song

I joined the forum about twenty minutes ago. My husband and I bought our new (to us) boat about a week ago and are still waiting for the part that will actually let us pull away from the dock. Until then, plenty of time to sing boat songs (a sad substitute).

No doubt showing our age ;-)

Southern Cross, Crosby, Stills & Nash

Rock the Boat, Hues Corporation

Sail On, The Commodores

Ride Captain Ride, Blues Image

And one I just heard, Boats by Kenny Chesney

Since AlaskaProf already mentioned my favorite (the instrumental from Master and Commander, which brings back some warm family memories from a Thanksgiving weekend on the water years ago), I'll offer my second favorite. David Gray, Sail Away with Me Honey... (This video is a little California cheesy, but it's far better than David Gray's own real video which is oddly dark and has nothing to do with sailing.)

https://youtu.be/mbNiGcSLmz4

That song brings back good memories too of a long, sunny charter weekend to Catalina we did with good friends some years ago, out past the Queen Mary on a boat called the Coconut Telegraph, learned how to moor with a fore-and-aft sand line off Decanso Beach, fun days on the island. That was a good weekend with my pretty blond sunburnt wife and our friends, sitting in the cockpit together at night with glasses of wine and the lights of the island twinkling...ahhhh.

Ohhh, no no no, AlaskaProf had another piece in mind. This one is my favorite three times over: first, for that family Thanksgiving weekend on the water, second, because I played this during a week-long sail on the Maine schooner Heritage in Penobscot Bay, and then third because I played it on our own boat as we motored out of Newport, Rhode Island and around Point Judith beside one of the Volvo Ocean racers, off to Long Island Sound and up the Hudson to bring our boat home.

How is it that there isn't a single Jimmy Buffet tune on this list?

I had a Buffett tune in the first post. I tried to limit myself to just one though...I figured there'd be more to follow.

Sorry. Overlooked that, but I'll offer: Changes in Latitude...

Simply beautiful music.Terrific movie to boot.

Here's another classic, the soundtrack from the Onedin Line.(A BBC series, early 70's I think)
