Rise her Up (Whiskey O)
Lead by MacColl.
Could only be from Doerflinger, though they messed with it and reshaped it a lot. Spliced it with "Whiskey Johnny."

Sally Brown
Lead by Lloyd.
Haven't heard it. Will update once I find a copy.

Sally Racket
Lead by Lloyd.
Melody as in Moby-Dick film's "Hill and Gully Rider". Lloyd may have spliced in words from Terry's "Cheerl'y Man" (as Hugill did also do). Overall, not too much different than what Hugill claims to have gotten from Harding.

Lead by Lloyd.
Some inspiration from Doerflinger, but Lloyd's own tweaks.

Stormalong (way, hey, mister stormalong)
Lead by MacColl.
So close to Hugill's SfSS, and no other versions found. Yet this was recorded several years before Hugill's book. They must have been collaborating. Perhaps Hugill coached MacColl on the yelps.

Wild Goose Shanty (?)
Lead by Lloyd.
Unique to the collection of, or made up (e.g. from Terry's "The Bully Boat") by Lloyd.
