Growing out of an idle musing about the word "peajacket", and the author's long-time fascination with sailors' language, this book is intended for the enjoyment, and perhaps enlightenment, of anyone interested in the rich lore of ships, boats, and the sea.

While it is a glossary of terms, the definitions are kept short to focus instead on the origins of the words, some of which have roots tracing back to the ancient Egyptians and Phoenicians.
