A sailor of any kind can not be a landlubber, by definition. Most think the term refers to someone who lives on land. This is the correct definition from Webster's:

/ˈlŠndˌlʌbɚ/ noun. a person who knows very little or nothing about the sea or ships : a person who is not a sailor
So a docklubber, if not a landlubber, would be someone who knows little or nothing about land?
