Thread Name: What's in a (Mudcat) name
Subject: RE: BS: What's in a name
Lee Shore comes from my 30 years as a mariner, which refers to the downwind shoals that will undo an inattentive sailor. I took the name from my father's constant warnings in my youth that I was fast bearing down on one. I've noticed several other nautical handles here, like Charlie Noble and Catspaw and a couple others that I disremember at the moment. I'm curious as to their connection to the sea.
