Two uppers and a scupper

The upper mess on Tenacious is where the permanent crew and the ongoing watch eat. (The ‘lower mess’ is where everyone else eats.)

Time for some nautical ups!

Taken from the platform above the upper topsail on the mainmast of Tenacious, this photo is a view looking forward (and down!). The whiter sail at the top of the photo is the upper topsail on the foremast.

A scupper is an opening in a ship’s side that allows water to run off the deck. In a big sea, when a ship is rolling, it also allows water to run onto the deck!

Tenacious, Atlantic Ocean

Posted for Becky’s SquareUp challenge. I’ve gone with “playing around with the word up”.
