  Background tips:

  Why does a ship need a godmother?

  In the history of shipping, there is a very long and respected tradition. On the occasion of each new ship's departure, a grand naming ceremony will be held, and a woman will be the godmother for the bottle throwing ceremony, so that the new ship can sail smoothly and safely, just like a godmother praying for her godson.

  Tracing back to the origin of godmother, a long time ago, navigation technology was not yet developed, maritime disasters often occurred. At that time, people believed that the shipwreck was caused by the wrath of the God of the sea. Before launching the new ship, a bottle throwing ceremony was held to pray for the safety of the crew and name the new ship. Bottle throwing is usually done by the captain's wife or a prominent woman who throws a bottle of champagne at the bow of the ship and recites a poem with emotion. This is the gift of throwing a bottle, and the woman who throws a bottle is the godmother of the ship.
