The SEATALK nautical dictionary may never be complete.  There are more seagoing terms out there, and you may notice that a term is missing. 

You can become a contributor by sending in a term that is not in the database.  We will research your contribution, find suitable citations to verify its correct usage, and add the new term to the database along with your name as the contributor.  We will also list you as a member of our research team, and provide a link to your website.

To make a contribution, simply send us an email
