  • Boating Definitions and Mnemonics for Sailors and Powerboaters Boating Definitions and Mnemonics for Sailors and Powerboaters
    When one is first learning boating, there seems to be an endless confusion of terms, procedures, and rules to be memorized. Many of these are critical to safety, and over the years boaters have invented various little mnemonics to help them navigate the complexities. This Web page is a collection of such mnemonics, most time-honored, but a few invented by the author of the page (Geoff Kuenning) to fill in the gaps where none were available.

  • Naval Terminology, Jargon, and Slang FAQ Naval Terminology, Jargon, and Slang FAQ
    Since days of yore the military in general, and sailors in particular, have often had a rather pithy (dare I say 'tasteless'?) manner of speech. That may be changing somewhat in these politically correct times, but to Bowdlerize the sailor’s language represented here would be to deny its rich history. The traditions and origins remain. While I have attempted to present things with a bit of humor, if you are easily offended this FAQ may not be for you. You have been warned.

  • Royal Navy: Covey Crump Royal Navy: Covey Crump
    Many terms now in use in the English language around the world owe their beginnings to slang originated by sailors of the Royal Navy. A valuable resource in tracing these origins has been Covey Crump - a collection of Naval slang, abbreviations, legends and historical tit-bits which was originally compiled by Commander A. Covey-Crump, RN, a former Naval Assistant to the Chief of Naval Information. The first edition appeared on 17th May, 1955. It is re-produced here and provides a valuable resource for researchers looking for answers to many historical questions about the Royal Navy.
