marinership (uncountable)

    • Sir Anthony Ashley
      I am ashamed to think what small advantage comes to you by that foolish matter of Meverell; not so much for the loss, as for the unadvised carriage thereof; a few silly fools overcame us for want of marinership, and could afterwards sport at their pleasure, vaunting how cheap they passed the storm and compassed their purposes []
