Mare is latin for sea, and still used as the root in words like Mariner, Marina, Marinara Sauce. The “sea” of the subconscious is personified in the name Mary - the Mother of God.
So it was with particular interest that I noticed a handsome vessel named Maritime Training steam up while I was hanging out on the waterfront this week. And then… same day, I get an email from somebody named “Trainer” who had taken some pics of a boat named Proud Mary.
Mary Time Training?
The personal joke is that I used to work for a boat building company that called itself US Marine Corp. When traveling, the car rental places would always offer us the military discount.
