If you want to be a sailor, or play with boats then you need to learn certain phrases and words and speak sailor talk. You need to know the difference between the pulpit and pushpit, the heads and the bow…you need to know what faking a rope is, when the dog watch starts…

One of my favourites has got to be “Cheesing ropes” which is where you lay the rope down in an increasing circle. Ive never been able to say it with a straight face yet and I doubt I ever will!
