Thank you, this is indeed very helpful! Now for the "feel": I guess most people are not experts in 19th century nautical lingo, so how does this phrase "feel" to a modern native speaker?

comment How can you encourage native speakers to correct mistakes non-native speakers make?
I am not convinced because especially kids learning a language are being corrected all the time (by their parents, teachers etc.)!
