Navigation is a field of study that focuses on the process of monitoring and controlling the movement of a craft or vehicle from one place to another. The field of navigation includes four general categories: land navigation, marine navigation, aeronautic navigation, and space navigation.
A ship is a large watercraft that travels the world's oceans and other sufficiently deep waterways, carrying passengers or goods, or in support of specialized missions, such as defense, research and fishing. Historically, a "ship" was a sailing vessel with at least three square-rigged masts and a full bowsprit. Ships are generally distinguished from boats, based on size, shape, load capacity, and tradition.
Ye gentlemen of England
That live at home at ease,
Ah! little do you think upon
The dangers of the seas.
Martyn Parker, Ye Gentlemen of England.
Though pleas'd to see the dolphins play,
I mind my compass and my way.
Matthew Green, Spleen, line 826.
Ye who dwell at home,
Ye do not know the terrors of the main.
Robert Southey, Madoc in Wales, Part IV.
