Suggestion for off-the-wall lesson topic - sailing

Posted by mark November 10, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

I haven't had much luck with friends or dictionaries with sailing terminolgy like: types of boat - sloop, ketch...; parts - genoa, blocks, halyards, sheets...;  actions - tack, jib, heave to ...

<> Anyway,  what  the  heck  did  Geng  He  say  when  he wanted to shout, "man the mizzen mast before I keel haul you!", or whatever order would be in character for him to shout or wisper, etc.?
