Interestingly, the 1st American Warship to be actually named for a woman was the USS Higby..Commissioned in WWII.....upon which my Dad served as a plank owner. The Higby was named after a Navy Nurse...My middle brother is a now Captain in the Navy Nurse Corps... I remind them both though that... I'm still the only Sailor in the family...

When LLoyds makes my boat payment, they can decide what to call my Vessel.
Until then......

Polynesians ascribe a masculine identity to their canoes. Whichever tradition we ascribe to I am sure that some will be unsatisfied. The world is now international and it is arrogant to enforce a British tradition on the rest of theworld
