Re: What is a " spare man"
Over the summer I read Kipling's Captains Courageous.
I'll bet not one person in 100, maybe 1,000, can read that book today and understand much of what is going on. Yet, Kipling was writing for the masses at the time. He expected people to understand nautical terms and the language of the day included many references to maritime Canada locales.
