A ship has to be organized and in good condition before it can sail. A bicycle is not a ship, but we compare anything to a ship when it is clean, neat and in good repair.

「この自転車はずっと置きっぱなしだから週末に町まで乗る前にきちんと手入れをしよう。」

船は出港する前にきちんと整備をして、良い状態にしないといけません。自転車は船ではありませんが、何かを整備して良い状態に整える時に船という単語を引き合いに出して言います。
