Es una expresión de cariño, de apego (el uso del femenino), que me recuerda algo parecido en inglés. Los marineros usan she para referirse a su barca.

@Ambarina & María José: Por aquí "la mar" suena más poético. Gracias por la aclaración sobre el uso corriente del femenino.

@Poli: You caught my fear on translating those sentences to English. Thank you

Aquí también es más poético. Tienes razón, Angélica... no me había dado cuenta.

En Ecuador la mar es siempre femenina. Incluso en la sierra me corregían sí decía "el mar".
