Tagged: ship sponsor

A ship sponsor is a civilian who is invited to "sponsor" a vessel, presumably to bestow good luck and divine protection over the seagoing vessel and all that sail aboard. In the US Navy and Coast Guard the sponsor is technically considered a permanent member of the crew and is expected to give a part of their personality to the ship, as well as advocate for its continued service and well-being. -- Wikipedia
