Nautical Term

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

One “aw, shit” wipes out a thousand “atta-boys”.




I’ve never heard a term for that but the term for what causes it is ‘channel fever’.

Thanks for noticing I said that already.

The fuckup fairy paid a visit


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