SKILLED SAILOR Quote - Brass Tag Necklace



"A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

To us, this quote addresses the inevitable hardships that we face in life and how enduring them and learning from them gives us skills to weather the next storm that comes our way. A smooth sea can be helpful for initial training in basics and concepts, but how well lessons were learned are truly proven when push comes to shove.

This pendant is meant to serve as a reminder to learn and grow through the difficulties of life, and its pleasant weight against your chest will provide a constant nudge to live out this ideal.

The dog tag shape is a nod to the dog tags that our military wear and all of the hardships that they face and endure.


  • Brass tag measurements
    • 1.5" tall by .85" wide
    • 1mm thick

If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.

Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.

Better Than Expected

Initially when I found Maritime Supply I instantly liked the products and designs, but was apprehensive because of the low prices I thought the product would be cheaply made. It is not. Very impressed with the product, came in a awesome carrying bag, and was at my doorstep the same week. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase and Maritime Supply’s ongoing efforts to helping the water conditions in the world. They definitely have a repeat customer in me. Wish I could give more stars than 5.
