A comprehensive published collection of all these comic sea/canal journey songs would make a good book. There seems to be lots of them. The Calabar spawned a lot of localised versions this side of the pond. There are lots of Irish members of the genre as well. I think there are other American ones in some of the nineteenth century songsters.
