Quick Reference

(pron. sued),

an old maritime word used to describe a ship which had run ashore and had to await the next tide before refloating. A vessel was said to be sewed by the difference between the level of the water and the flotation mark on its hull, e.g. it was sewed 60 centimetres (2 ft) if the level of the water was that amount below its normal flotation mark.
