Does a banana travel by a boat?
If you buy a banana in Europe, changes are almost 100% that your banana has been travelling by boat. Sea transport has always been very important to the organisation of a banana exporting. From the nineteenth century, the banana trade has basically connected tropical producing countries with northern hemisphere markets. The earliest connections were from West Indian islands to Britain and France, and from the Caribbean coasts of Central and South America to the United States.

Boats don't travel on it's own. People steer it and maybe, in a row boat, the row the boat.
This is a song about Jamaicans loading the banana boats and waiting for the 'tally man' to count their load so they could leave and go home.
A song by a black man based on a traditional song sung by black Jamaicans. Soooo racist. NOT.
The Answer can be found in the history of Trinidad where the banana boat song was a traditional Jamaican song. They loved The Belafonte version and won't argue about copyright…s. They just love music in that style
There are many stories, some saying that ships hauling cargo (among them bananas) would sink and that the predominate feature on the surface was yellow bananas. I read that in… Florida, charter boat captains have banned all things banana. No lotion with the word banana on it. No muffins with the offending fruit and esp. not the banana its self. Here is another story of the tale. Around the 17th and 18th century trans-ocean crossings were very dangerous endeavors for Captains, crews and passengers aboard wooden sailing ships. There were a very high percentage of vessels that sank in these times. Ships often sailed routes that would take them near tropical islands, where they could replenish with food and water. Passengers, explorers and crew would purchase crates of bananas from local islanders. Banana crates were have said to contain more than just this good fruit. They sometimes had spiders, snakes and other creepy crawlers taking up residence inside. These critters would then find there way into all the nooks and crannies, the bilge & bunk rooms and multiply. Causing moderate to serious problems aboard a ship at sea. It order to combat this, Captains began telling people that bananas are very bad luck and the vessel will be successful by not having bananas aboard. If you know sailors they are a superstitious lot.

It is considered to be bad luck in the Hawaiian culture because the sailors there would always take bananas with them on the boat, the bananas would always rot around the time… the boat got far enough into the ocean, sea, etc. to catch any fish, the Hawaiians associated this with bad luck.
