  1. noun The small area out to sea, comprising all of "H.M.S. Essex" plus the 'vicious rocks' room. Sometimes known as the Galleon. See pirates.
  2. noun The enduring legend which has arisen in all incarnations of MUD to the effect that "H.M.S. Essex" can somehow be refloated and used to move out to sea. In fact, this really could be achieved with a sufficiently monumental effort (although, unfortunately, this effort would be required by the programmer rather than by the players).
