How Much Nautical is Too Much?

I'm probably a bit late to the nautical party, but my love of the nautical flavoured fashion snuck up on me.  A horizontal navy stripe here...

An anchor print there...

And there...

And suddenly I'm stashing boat prints, and anchor buttons, and perhaps Joss needs a sailor dress, perhaps I need a sailor dress!  

So the pile of patterns has been growing, and the knits!  Oh there is a very special place in my heart for nautical knitwear.  Like this and this from Drops, and this from a 1990 Verena, and little gem below that I've had for a few years now.  

I promise I won't go overboard (ha), just a Bonny top, maybe a sailboat shirt and just one knit. It doesn't count if you make a sailor dress in a floral print does it? I don't think it does.
