Dead Horse 'Donkeyman' calling Shanty nerds (61* d) RE: 'Donkeyman' calling Shanty nerds 18 Feb 13


Perhaps the engine was originally used for working the pumps.
Pumps used to be important in the days of sail, as it was necessary to keep the ship afloat. Nowadays with super-tankers and suchlike vessels, pumps are absolutely vital as it is the only way to get the beer up from the hold to the crews quarters. :-)
