Hi Theo, glad you enjoyed the course. Say hi to your Dad and Brother for me!

Welcome to the Forums, I'm sure everyone will make you feel right at home, and all the Lymington members will keep a good eye out for the Red Zodiac leaving Lymington (keeping to the speed limit of course )

Well done on POSH - I'll have to think up a new one for you to find out...

Swinging the lead - A person pretending to work (or claiming to be ill) when he is not.
Pre-modern days, seamen would check the depth of water by dropping
a lead weight, attached to a thin marked rope, to the bottom of a
waterway. Some lazy sailors would take as long as possible about it.
They would swing the lead to and fro several times instead of just
dropping it straight into the water

This expression, meaning "be very careful to behave correctly",
has been in use from the 17th century on. Theories include: an
admonishment to children learning to write; an admonishment to
typesetters (who had to look at the letters reversed); an
admonishment to seamen not to soil their navy pea-jackets with
their tarred "queues" (pigtails); "mind your pints and quarts";
"mind your prices and quality"; "mind your pieds and queues"
(either feet and pigtails, or two dancing figures that had to be
accurately performed); the substitution of /p/ for "qu" /kw/ in the
speech of uneducated ancient Romans; or the confusion by students
learning both Latin and Ancient Greek of such cognates as pente
and quintus. And yes, we've heard the joke about the instruction
to new sextons: "Mind your keys and pews."

WOW, Boy racer, I am impressed. However, all you had to do was Google it. However, Good Job.

What do you mean "pre modern days" - this is still how you do it on my boat (although I thinks its Aluminium rather than lead).
