Is the discussion about 2-6-heave of relevance to shanties? Since the thread is about R N shanty usage, yes. It is widely accepted that the RN rarely if ever used shanties,they used something else in their place 2-6-heave which is in use today as one example. The discussion is about the origin of the call,ie did it originate in the RN or some where else,it also being in common use.
