Word of the day – fo’c’sle.
“Forecastle refers to the upper deck of a sailing ship forward of the foremast, or the forward part of a ship with the sailors’ living quarters. Related to the latter meaning is the phrase “before the mast” which denotes anything related to ordinary sailors, as opposed to a ship’s officers.”
I know where it is, but can’t pronounce it to save my life…. Apparently “foxsicle” to rhyme with “Popsicle” is definitely wrong. Either way, thanks to Led and Lee, it’s now water free ready for the lift!
