    OK, you can sing and you play instruments but make it sound like you want to reach shore before sunset! The weather is not getting any better and you wives are waiting so give it a bit of ooomph!

    🙂 🙂 🙂 wonderful comment, ye’re absolutely right! I like the McCalmans singing it, they have got the right “drive”!

    @19Moira sorry it’s taken this long to respond (I’m a lazy b****r)
    The “Poxy Boggards” – I just found them by accident – do a lively version of this. Worth a listen. I imagine they are a very entertaining show to watch. I’m on the wrong side of the Atlantic to see them.

    @DasHearach Yes, a nice and vivid version, but for me beeing not American, the vid to it is too patriotic…It’s only a fisherman’s song in the end.
