I always get in trouble talking about sea cloths in the UK. Here they are called "dodgers," and what a yank would call a dodger is called a "sprayhood."

Also, you have a pushpit at the stern, and in most cases the boom vang is a kicker.

Finally, don't even dream of calling a floating dock anything but a pontoon.
