    I know there is a wind band arrangement of "Pirates of the Carribean", so maybe there's also one for brass band...

    and Rule Britannia maybe?

    If you're after a watery march, then why not Padstow Lifeboat? Always a classic!

    As well as the Henry Wood "Fantasy" there is also a Gordon Langford "Fantasia on British Sea Songs"; there's also the George Lloyd march "HMS Trinidad" and various Alford marches such as "HM Jollies".

    Isn't there also a cornet trio (Siebert?) called "Three jolly sailormen"?

    Equally, if you wanted to be a bit tongue in cheek, I'm sure there's an arrangement out there somewhere of "In the navy" ;)

    there's always under the sea from finding nemo? I know there is a brass version of that and I don't think its too difficult

    Isn't that the Little Mirmaid? Either way that'd be cool. Fantasia on Brittish Seasongs is good... its got the hornpipe in it.
