unless you own a lugger the proper term is not pushpit. use sternrail which is proper and appropriate.

see, german is in this case easier and this word pull and push keeps me also confused every time but... such is life

take care

Yes! I will be using this! My boyfriend speaks Dutch and German and English. I never know which will come out. But he only knows nautical terms in English. I can't wait to use these words just to flumox him LOL


Different subject - "baggywrinkles" makes me giggle every time! It's annoying now, but when I am 80, white haired and stooped over to 4'6"....the giggle will be charming
