Listener 4417: HMS Arcady by Hedge-sparrow.

This started well having solved 1a - removed letter J - John? - title HMS Arcady, don't know what that signifies, but could it be John Masefield's Cargoes? A few more clues solved and it was confirmed.

Thereafter it was a very smooth and enjoyable solve. JM must have had crosswords in mind when he wrote the poem, given the number of 7, 8 and 9-letter items on board.

I never did get the HMS Arcady bit, so thanks Hedge-sparrow for the explanation - devious, but brilliant!
