The nautical world has a language of its own; a rich lexicon that is well worth knowing, as much for its colourful language as for its more practical aspects.

You will notice that many expressions heard in common everyday use come from a nautical background. Expressions like 'loose cannon', and 'son of a gun' plus many more.

If you are interested in boating and want to learn more about it, this book is for you. Knowing the language goes a long way.
