Why a ship is called "SHE"

A ship is called "she" because there is always a great deal of "Bustle" around her and there is usually a gang of "men" about.
She has a "waist" and stays in "shape" for a long time.
It takes a lot of "paint" to keep her looking good and it is not the initial expense that breaks you, it is the "upkeep."
It takes an experienced man to handle her correctly and, without a man at the helm, she is absolutely uncontrollable.
She can be all "decked out."
She shows her "top side," hides her "bottom," and when coming into port, always heads for the "buoys."
