Scuttlebutt

Scuttlebutt


noun  .  scut-tle-butt  .   /ˈskə-təl-ˌbət/

A cask of fresh water or dinking fountain on a ship.

Similar to the contemporary practice of gathering and gossiping at the office water cooler, the same was true on vessells centuries before we established this practice. Scuttlebutt soon became slang for gossip or talk, as shipmates would gather at the water cask and discuss the ship's prattle and chatter.

Similarly here, you will find buzz about boats, boat care, boat shows, and everything else we come up with!
