If people can't be civil over such matters as the appropriate definirtion of a word, How the hell can we stand together against people with much better resources (nor to mention s chain of command). I have no objection to the argument per se, but I do think it can be carried out without name calling and similar behavior,

We are all brothers in som4thing important. You may need the support of "asshole" some day.

Please try for civility among ourselves. Save your anger for the oligarchs.

@hibbitus,
I cordially invite you to go piss up a rope. I never was very impressed with sanctimony.

Sorry, I'm new and didn't notice the date. And I apologize if I sound like I was scolding. I ******* don't care about what **** you want to think is profanity. I do think that socialists are getting enough **** from the outside to not stand together in our own ranks. That last sentence is my entire message. I did not mean any more than that, but I tend to wordiness.

I just discovered this interesting thread. Here's one of my favorite small boats, the Friendship Sloop:

I once had a talk with an old lobsterman who remembered fishing from one of these boats as a kid. To haul a trap the lobsterman would catch hold of the buoyed trap line with a gaff hook and the momentum of the boat would free the trap from the bottom, then the trap would be hauled up by hand.



Looking at the pictures of the big vessels under sail I got curious and I was going to ask if anyone knew why masts were raked on some boats. But I did a little searching and found this:

... a ketch, which was originally designed as a (war) fishing boat.
[Very interesting story, but unfortunately nothing in English online.]

The examination was done on a navy cutter ...

While the Nordwind had a motor, on the cutter oars were the auxiliary motor. (I took part in regatta at Kiel Week, rowing was part of it.
