The boat represents a journey,
a crossing, adventure, and exploration. It is also the femininity and "sheltering
aspect of the Great Mother" (Cooper, 1978). Reference in literature as the cradle
rediscovered (the mother's womb).
Crossing the SEA can be viewed as being symbolic of
making the journey across life; therefore, a boat can be seen as that which enables
us to make such a journey, whether it be faith, education, desire, curiosity,
or any other such motivation. In a general sense, a vehicle.
