Myth or not ?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Was sidetracked when I googled for something and this was amongst them:

    For sailors, it was lucky:

    to smash a bottle against the boat just before sailing
    Not if it was still full of spirit.
    for sailors to have tattoos
    Not if it was on your bell end.
    to throw an old pair of shoes overboard just after launch
    Especially if it was someone elses.
    to have a black cat on board
    They caught more rats for the Sunday lunch.
    for a child to be born on the ship
    Even luckier for someone if it was conceived onboard.
    for sailors to wear gold hoop earrings
    Somewhere to hang your socks after dhobeying them.
    to touch the collar of a sailor
    Not if it was a stokers and thick with dandruff.
    to step aboard using the right foot first
    Fcuked then if you were on crutches.

    For sailors, it was unlucky:

    to name the boat with a word ending in "a"
    Glad I was never on Britannia.
    to have the bottle not break when used in the launch ceremony
    Not so sure of that one especially if it was on a lanyard and you got it back still full.
    to change the name of a boat
    All the crew got lost after a run ashore.
    to sail on a green boat
    Don't join Greenpiece then folks.
    to sail on a Friday
    Couldn't spend your pay.(Ok I know it was Thursdays).
    to see rats leaving a ship
    Even they were afraid of the new Bosun.
    to have someone die on the ship
    Only if the only spare bunk was above yours.
    to whistle on board a ship
    Bosun knew you were awake and had you turn too.
    to cross an area where another ship once sunk
    All the crew jumped overboard to collect the pieces of eight.
    to lose a bucket at sea
    This really was unlucky, the Bosun would send you after it.
  2. For a lolrus, losing a bukket is lifes great tragedy!
    He had a buket but they stoled it.
  3. That's easy for you to say...
