The 'run'
« on: September 05, 2017, 09:18:05 pm »
Please can anyone tell me what bit of the ship is a 'run'?
We have this from the William Baylies Whaler in 1892:

Mar 4 - had a good look: Mar 4 - William Macoy one of the men forward had some words at the Wheel with the Capt. and we put him in irons and down in the run



Thank you!  :D

From https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/run :

75. nautical
a. the tack of a sailing vessel in which the wind comes from astern
b. part of the hull of a vessel near the stern where it curves upwards and inwards

Could it make sense?
