    Anything from Scuba Doo...

    Especially "It's a Moray" for those beautiful nights on the back of the boat, watching the sunset turn the sky a brilliant purple, a glass of champagne and my woman in my arms.

    I can imagine that the Theme Music from the movie Das Boot would be cool....(some boats have UW speakers - that would be cool to hear)

    Jack Johnson does it for me. He was a pro surfer, turned acoustic guitar player, and his songs capture that "surfy, ocean loving" vibe as well (if not better) than Jimmy Buffet.

    If you have never heard him, it would be worth your while to check him out!!!

    I am in the process of moving all my old cd's to the computer and came across "purple haze" from Jimi Hendrix's Experience Hendrix CD. This is what it says on the insert:

    "I dream a lot and I put a lot of my dreams down as songs. Purple Haze was all about a dream I had that I was walking under the sea."

    Nice song but does not really sound like an "ocean" song.

    George Winston. Piano solos. Just close your eyes and picture yourself drifting along the reef.

    See sig line. :D

    Boat music I generally think happy music....the typical Marley, Buffett. (Hey, I'ma Florida girl...)

    Underwater, definitely something more ethereal.....I'm thinking Enya, Nora Jones....
