GUEST,Anne Croucher Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) (117* d) RE: Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) 12 Aug 04

I sing 'fishing lugger'in the second verse - you can have a lugger that is not a fishing boat but you can't have a lugger than is not a sailing vessel - a lugs'l is a four cornered sail set fore and aft bent onto a yard slung off centre.

The term 'sailing lugger' is a tautology.
