NOAA Photo Library Image - ship1589

The jolly boatmen of the Coast and Geodetic Survey Ship WESTDAHL. "Happy are we, fearless and free, Rowing our boats o'er the deep blue sea, Ladies, at best, hold landsmen cheap --Pull away merrily, all pull cheerily. Beauty smiles on the sons of the deep -- Pull away merrily, all pull cheerily. Happy are we, fearless and free, Rowing our boat o'er the deep blue sea."
