Nautical Term

#1

My Daughter Who just got out of the Navy is asking me, What is that term we use, When at the end of a long successful voyage and just before you get to the Dock everything goes to hell, Apparently I told her 10 years ago and now I cant remember, I told her I will ask my fellow seafarers, Any help? Thanks

Foul up : To foul is a nautical term meaning entangled. The expression ""foul up simply means to error or “screw up”.

Channel Fever. Symptoms include spending the money on toys before you have your discharge in hand.
