Nautical terms
« on: May 10, 2014, 11:34:44 PM »

Theyre very interesting, a sort of language of there own, How many can you spot here;


I cant fathom them, but you have to allow a little leeway

The world is chock-a-block with them, but one day there'll be the Devil to pay

Definitely not a Fly-by-Night thing, it seems to just be Forging ahead

They are indeed! When I first started getting interested in ocean liners I didn't know port from starboard (literally), so it was quite the learning curve. I still don't know a lot of the terms, esp. those connected with sailboats.
