Re: Help with a nautical term requested.

Well Jim, I'm just saying that yelling at they crew on the halyard to "fire it" was not the right thing to do. I agree that it means blowing the halyard but if you do that there is a big risk that the spinnaker will land in the water. When that happens you know what it means ?

Fresh prawns for dinner.

And fillet mignon for the sailmaker!
