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.

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

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.
