Looking for thread

I read a very interesting article which described some of the terms in modern day and how they originated from sailing ie down the hatch, son of a gun, and I wanted to forward it to some friends, but of course now I cant find it. If anyone can link me to its location that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know which article you're specifically speaking of...since there have been several that fit that vague description. A good source to read is the book "Mariners Miscellany".

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hi there,

It was just a recent thread in this forum that talked about english expression in use today and how they originated from sailing. It also touched on the history for example the allotments of rum.
