As i am going awol for a week i will tidy up my locker a {MACK} Is a structure which combines the Radar Masts and the Funnel or the exhaust stack of a surface ship, The word itself is a combination of {MA}....ST and STA.....{CK} Hence the term {MACK} :o :o :o Sparks !!!!!!!!! Regards shipmates islandmann. :wave; :wave;

To walk the ships anchor !!!!!! means to lower it down to the surface of the sea, any good ships glossary will inform you and of course while walking her anchor all hands could stand still :quit: Regards lads Terry. Q, These two nautical terms have five letters which i will guarantee everyone aboard has used at some time!!!!! But have two entirely separate meanings aboard ship what are the words :scratchhead: Regards lads Terry. :spank:
