Well if it helps here is an explanation of why ships are also always called a she:

"It has always been customary to personify certain inanimate objects and attribute to them characteristics peculiar to living creatures. Thus, things without life are often spoken of as having a sex. Some objects are regarded as masculine. The sun, winter, and death are often personified in this way. Others are regarded as feminine, especially those things that are dear to us. The earth as mother Earth is regarded as the common maternal parent of all life. In languages that use gender for common nouns, boats, ships, and other vehicles almost invariably use a feminine form. Likewise, early seafarers spoke of their ships in the feminine gender for the close dependence they had on their ships for life and sustenance"

Learned the other day that, in French, mustard is feminine and ketchup is masculine.

I figure Kit's a she because a) she's cute instead of handsome, and b) ships are 'she'.

I forgot all about updating my profile! I'd better go do that . . .

On reflection of Carols post I think I see her point.
I know crawling out a sleeping bag I have been told I look like death warmed over a time or two, even been called a sun of something or other, but generally not twice by the same fellow, I tended to get pretty cold and frosty over that sort of thing awful quick.

Kit is a lovely name for a camper, but I reserve the right to name mine with a fine bold name such as Vikings would use for their ships.
