Subject: What does 'Roll and GO' mean?
Hello Mudcatters,

I have been wondering what the nautical term "Roll and Go" means. I figured Google would tell me quickly, but I got absolutely no useful hits! I also tried the Mudcat search, and got lots of hits, but none that seemed promising (and too many to just try them all.)

So, in the context of sailing ships, what does Roll and Go mean?
