Default Re: Nautical terms while at sea

It's an overhead not a ceiling
It's a deck not a floor
It's a bulkhead not a wall
It's a skuttlebutt not a drinking fountain
It's a galley not a kitchen
It's a mess hall not a dining room
It's a brig not a jail
It's a hatchway not a door
It's a ladder way not stairs
It' the fantail not the back of the ship
It's a swab not a mop
It's chow not food
It's a slopchute not a snackbar
It's a frosty not a beer
It's geedunk not munchies
It's hooch not booze
And a whole lot more that I just don't remember right now.
