Anthropomorphism. A ship is inanimate, a big machine. You're welcome to your (incorrect) opinion, though.
The problem is, it's asking questions like "Is it brave?" after he already specified up front that it's a thing, not a sentient being, which leads to confusion because the person responding can interpret it as "Was the ship involved in a brave act?" It really needs separate questions geared towards each individual category.
