Pooped, to be

In ships of the past the poop was the raised after deck at the stern. We don’t have poops nowadays, but if a sea breaks over the stern of your boat and into your cockpit she is pooped – and you become wet and perturbed. Fortunately it is a rarity, but if you ever find yourself in conditions where pooping seems likely or possible, clip yourself firmly to the boat so as not to be washed overboard.
