Most of us never realise how many words and expressions used in
everyday English have a nautical origin. This fascinating and charming
pocket book explains the seafaring beginnings of over 200 such phrases — colourful, bizarre and surprising — and how they came ashore.
Just a few examples are:
Chock-a-block
Chance your arm 
Money for old rope
Spic and span
Push the boat out 
At close quartersThis entertaining book has been a popular title for boaters and landlubbers alike, ever since first publication in 1983.
