Ha, topic captured and re-used.
Sandpiper has a lot of mentioning of a word that is either camber or cumber, can't tell from the handwriting. Cumber does not appear to exist in a relevant fashion, camber appears to be "a measure of lateral main deck curvature in naval architecture. The curve is applied to a deck transversely" according to Wiki.
But the way my logkeeper uses it, it says "Secured alongside HMS Moorhen in Camber" and stuff like that, they are usually 'in camber'.
What is it? Should it be capitalized? The logkeeper capitalizes it, but he capitalizes *everything*.
I usually just transcribe it, but I would hate to find out that it was, say, cumber after all. Check doublecheck!
