Shipping up to Boston

Our Sea Song of the Week is a little something to get our friends and neighbors in New England pumped for the big boat show in Boston this weekend.

Each week we post a nautical tune to help you get your weekend off to a great start, even if you can't get out on the boat. And with the New England Boat Show (NEBS) going on this week, and the stormy weather in the area, we couldn't think of a better shanty-like song than I'm Shipping Up to Boston from the Dropkick Murphys.

NEBS claims to have become the biggest boat show in the northeast, and is certainly the biggest winter boat show in New England. We'll be there with our friends from Boat Name Gear, who, rumour has it, will be giving away boat loads of personalized gear.

Now, back to our Sea Song of the Week...

Here are the Dropkick Murphys with I'm Shipping Up to Boston



For those few of you who follow the Daily Boater regularly, yes, this is a repeat from last October - something we rarely do... but can you think of a better song for the occasion?
