Some Slang (from actual play)
Keelside: The bottom of a ship. Also, generally, "below." Slang: Feeling poorly due to excess of drink or difficult circumstances. "After that night at the Silver Eel, I was keelside for a week!"
Shacklin': Vulgarity. "There's a shacklin' hole in the side of the ship!"
Juvven: Vulgarity. "Shut your juvven mouth!" Possibly related to Jove, an ancient diety, whose name is also used as an exclamation.
Grudding: Vulgarity. "The whole grudding fleet will be hunting us."
