    ‘Spanish burton’ is a pulley system. Thanks, Alexa.

    Bollards are the posts that you tie the warps(docklines) to.

    “And therefore three cheers for Nantucket; and come a stove boat and stove body when they will, for stave my soul Jove himself cannot.” —Melville. Stove: smashed, destroyed (by the whale’s fluke, in this case).

    You’ll know he’s the genuine article if he quotes Quint re: the body of Mary Lee… ;-)

    In this case, getting ‘stove in’ means getting hurt. A boat that’s had a hole knocked in it has been stove in.

    The old guy’s right you know. A moment’s inattention and a boat can kill you.

    “Spanish burton” : hoisting rig similar to block & tackle. “Bollard” : fixed post used to secure lines from boats.

    “Spanish burton”: arrangement of pulleys similar to a lock & tackle. “Bollard”: fixed vertical post used to secure line from a vessel. “Warp”: such a line.

    Reminds me of the Dr. Who Episode “The Curse of the Black Spot.” Captain Avery: To the rigging, you dogs! Let go the sails! Avanti! Put the bunting in the sack of the clews! Amy: I swear he’s making half this stuff up! Rory: Well we’re gonna need some kind of phrase book!

    Amusing himself at the expense of the tourists. All of those are real terms though.

    Ol’ Timer gave good advice! I hope Monty and Dehlia are careful enough not to get stove!
