Sea Rituals and Customs
The seas have always been dangerous for those who choose to sail them and most
seafarers tried hard to avoid incurring the wrath of Davy Jones – they once were sometimes
reluctant even to save drowning comrades lest they deprive the deep of a victim. However the
dilemma could be resolved by throwing the drowning man a rope or spar. This was a much less
personal intervention than actually giving a hand or diving in to help and therefore less risky.
Various shipboard ceremonies were observed and maintained religiously: at Christmas a
tree would be lashed to the top of the mast (the custom is still followed, and on ships lacking a
mast the tree is tied to the railings on the highest deck). At midnight as New Year’s Eve
becomes New Year’s Day the ship’s bell is rung eight times for the old year and eight times for
the new – midnight on a ship is normally eight bells – the oldest member of the crew giving the
first eight rings, the youngest the second.
“Burying the Dead Horse” was a ceremony which was continued in merchant ships until
late in the nineteenth century. The horse was a symbol for the month’s pay advanced on shore
(and usually spent before sailing); after twenty-eight days at sea the advance was worked out.
The horse’s body was made from a barrel, its legs of straw, the main and tail of hemp. The
animal was hoisted to the main yardarm and set on fire. It was allowed to blaze for a short time
and was then cut loose and dropped into the sea.
Seafarers crossing the equator for the first time – and sometimes the tropics of the polar
circles – are often put through a sort of baptism or initiation ceremony. The earliest recorded
reference to such a ritual dates back to 1529 on a French ship, but by the end of the following
century English vessels were involved in the same custom, which continues to this day in both
Royal Navy and merchant service.
One of the crew appears as Neptune, complete with crown, trident and luxuriant beard;
others represent Queen Amphitrite, a barber, a surgeon and various nymphs and bears. Anyone
who has not previously crossed “the Line” is ceremonially shaved with huge wooden razors,
then thoroughly ducked into a bath full of sea-water. Finally, the victim is given a certificate
which protects him from the same ordeal on any future occasion.
When a naval captain leaves his ship he can expect a ritual farewell. Even Prince Charles
was unable to escape when in 1976 he relinquished command of the minesweeper, HMS
“Bronington”; he was seized by white – coated doctors (his officers), placed in a wheelchair and
“invalided out” to the cheers of his crew members who held up a banner inscribed: “Command
has aged me”.
