An outstanding resource!

  • A colourful guide to the slang and jargon of the Royal Canadian Navy
  • Explains terms and phrases like the true meaning of the cut of his jib, WILCO, and grog
  • Answer questions you didn't even know you had, like why long-serving sailors wore pigtails, and where the word starboard came from.
Its wonderful to see such an outstanding collection of the words and phrases I have passed on to many young sailors in my forty-three years of naval service.A delightful read, for both mariners and non-mariners alike! Despite having over 25 years in the Royal Canadian Navy, I learned a few new terms reading this book. The author, who first introduced me as a very green Ordinary Seaman to the Naval world, has done a wonderful job capturing the unique nature of Naval speak. I would recommend this book to any new and even seasoned sailors to gain a better understanding of life at sea.09
