Rfv-sense jut out (ship’s bow or stern above keel)

Uhm... The portions of the hull on either end extending beyond the keel are the rakes, but that's a noun. A verb sense is to place out of square or out of plumb, especially at an acute angle, such as the bowsprit or masts which are often raked back or up (or, in some rigs such as the junk, raked forward). There's also the nautical sense of canonading so the shot ranges in the direction of her whole length (similar to enfilade, only afloat). (Overhangs/counters might be described as rakish as well, implying strength or speed, but I think this sense is pretty much wrong.) - Amgine/talk 21:36, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Definition 6 is entirely nonsensical.

No, you just don't understand anything about cellular automata. Equinox 22:47, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
