Bananas On Boats


Recommended Posts

Where did bananas on boats come from and what is the proper "tale". My mate told me this a few months ago that it was bad luck to take bananas on boats and I told him where to go (I will dutifully now swollow my words)

I just saw a post with someone referring to this so it must be semi commmon knowledge?!?!?


sgot me fascinated

I believe it was initially the Pacific islanders, but taken on by all seafarers.

Particularlly us fishermen!!!!

Be careful with that mate!

On most of the boats I fish off carrying a bannana will get you gaffed!


Then keelhauled!
