Let go the kedge the vessel drifting on Risdons Island, shortened sail: 1/4 before 12 a breeze from the north-west up kedge.
It was necessary to get the long-boat into the water to carry out the kedge.
Drop it when I tell you and let the kedge go after she sheers!
"kedge is too smart to take it all to himself," commented Mr. Martin.
Better than kedge, I think: kedge's mutes dresses rusty, an' their trousis is frayed.
Do you see the pointed rock a little to the right of the spot where the kedge is placed?
I know what I shall do to-morrow, the first thing—run out a light anchor and kedge the schooner off the beach.
"Stand by to let go the kedge," Augustin cried, eyeing them gloomily.
He had no kedge or grapple or cord, indeed, that would pretend to hold this boat against this gale.
It was the kedge which had been holding us, to the extent of its small ability.
