Re: My Favorite Nautical Terms...

I still like "WARP" It can have both good and bad meanings aboard any small boat !

Re: My Favorite Nautical Terms...

When I reported to my first ship in the Navy in the mid 90's I was in the "first wave" of women to be stationed aboard combat vessels.

The CO forbid the word "abreast" to be used after we arrived.

While in the past, the announcement would go over the 1MC (public address system on a ship), "Muster a 30-man working party abreast the Quarterdeck," he ordered everyone to use the word "adjacent"...

So as not to offend those of us with breasts?!?

I guess, he just didn't want to lose his command over an old nautical term.
[and if there was a smiley face icon covering his a$$, I'd have inserted it here]

Cheers,
Octopussy
