@puzzledjohn,
19a Tally
72a Kids, rib meaning to tease, joke.

I think it is shaves. Have has an s at either side. Have is in the clue and I think the 2 s may symbolise being in something.

@puzzledjohn,
If you see 'on board' in the clue, the answer will start and finish with S.

Quote:
Historically, prefixes for civilian vessels often identified the vessel's mode of propulsion, such as "MV" (motor vessel), "SS" (screw steamer; often cited as "steam ship"), or "PS" (paddle steamer).

Prefixes indicating a vessel's purpose, e.g. "RMS" (Royal Mail ship), or "RV" (research vessel), were also used.
