    Cool Best way to say it

    What's better said:

    a) Sea thinks we are quite right
    or
    The Sea thinks we are quite right

    b) At the service of seamen
    or
    At the service of the seamen

    and, if possible, why?

    b) At the service of seamen
    or
    At the service of the seamen

    In a) I am not sure what you are trying to say.
    In b) it could be either depending on the context.

    In a) It's about a shipyard, and they are promoting their ship building company. Kind of slogan sea metaphorically deciding they are good at job.

    In b) Same thing, I'm afraid. The shipyard company at the service of sailors.

    Re: Best way to say it

    OK, in that case these are correct.

    The Sea thinks we are quite right.

    At the service of seamen.
