Boaters Alphabet (T)

This is one of an occasional series of entries into my blog. The "Boaters Alphabet" today's letter is T and is for Tea the drink that powers the World. Whenever you need to ponder on a problem a cup of tea is the best beverage to drink. The English have a reputation that everything including cricket stops for tea!

Tea Clipper

is for Tack each leg of a zigzag course. I usually only do a zig-zag course when the amount of beer consumed at the local pub has achieved critical value.

is for Talk a time for telling tall tales of daring do - or jokes risque or otherwise. Its good to talk.

Talking about boats is not an easy task, someone has it to do, today its my turn.

Where did everyone go?

Tack - The lower corner of a sail.
Tender - small dinghy.
Tiller - A bar connected to the rudder and used to steer the boat.
Tiller handle - a handle to steer instead of a steering wheel.
Topsides - everything above deck as opposed to below deck.
Transom - The rear section of the hull.
Trawler - A fishing boat.
Trim - The way a boat floats in relation to the horizon, bow up, bow down or even.
