Navy slang vs Military slangEdit

Some of the entries here are not unique to the US Navy. This list should be compared to the list at Appendix:Military slang. If the term is in significant inter-service usage, it should probably be added to Military slang and pulled off this list. Rossami 04:40, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Fi Fi (pronounced like the French "fee fee"): Fuckin' idiot squared.

Reformat underwayEdit

Section-by-section formatting. However, will not be checking for redundancy with MilSlang. Nahum Reduta 23:20, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Line LockerEdit

So what is a "line locker" as in, "The guys in the "Line Locker" can..." ? Thanks -

A locker is basicaly any storage space. Be it tiny or huge they are almost always called a locker. In this case, it is where you store Line, AKA Rope. Herogamer 15:12, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

The "Line Locker" is a reference to a group of command-eligible naval officers within NAVSEA08. 02:51, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Shit HotEdit

I've heard this term a lot- hope it gets added to the list. 17:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)


Not Only No But Fuck No

Ship nicknamesEdit

Nearly every boat, ship, and occasionally squadron, will have an alternative name, either self named, or "earned." It does not make sense to put them here, should be a different list. -- Waterproof blue

Hm, OK. What would be a good (title for a) page to move them to? Appendix:List of slang names for U.S. Navy units? Or it could be a subpage of this page, such as Appendix:Glossary of U.S. Navy slang/Unit names. - -sche (discuss) 20:27, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Either way would be OK. The Glossary as a subpage would seem to be more convenient. Waterproof blue (talk) 00:51, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Anchor link crashes iPhone browsersEdit

On the iPhone, in both Safari and Chrome, clicking the letter "E" link at the top of the page takes the user out of the browser (I assume that means that the browser is crashing; not sure).

Not all of the links fail in this way, and I haven't seen the failure on Desktop browsers, but the "E" link (at least) on Chrome or Safari (at least) on iPhone causes this problem *every time*. I've done it several times, on both browsers.

Port and StarboardEdit in a duty rotation of two crews. In the description of the shipboard routine, don't crew members also have to stand watches in addition to their regular duties? Wasn't in the USN but I live in Norfolk and have heard guys bitching about this...Wikkileaker (talk) 19:54, 6 April 2017 (UTC)
