A boat at midnight sent alone to drift upon the moonless sea, a lute, whose leading chord is gone, a wounded bird, that hath but one imperfect wing to soar upon, are like what I am, without thee.
A rotten carcass of a boat, not rigged, Nor tackle, sail, nor mast; the very rats Instinctively have quit it.william shakespeare
Give a man a horse he can ride, Give a man a boat he can sail; And his rank and wealth, his strength and health, On sea nor shore shall fail.james thomson

To stare into the after-light, the glitter left on the lake's surface,When the sun has fallen behind a wooded island;To follow the drips sliding from a lifted oarHeld up, while the rower breathes, and the small boat drifts quietly shoreward;To know that light falls and fills, often without our knowing.theodore roethke

Henry James, born in New York in 1843, stood beside his father on a Hudson River excursion boat and heard Washington Irving tell that Margaret Fuller had been drowned the day before.

Bring them victuals and drink."christopher columbus
