There is also an entry for "dreweler" . The sentence refers to "beer-swilling, hairy-chested drewelers" and when you look up the word drewel, it is defined as a stitch in a fishing net, and those who knit nets the old-fashioned way are called "drewelers". Of course, if they're watching young bikini-clad women walk by, they're probably drooling drewelers, but that's another point. This book is so fascinating for the blend of Gaelic, English and other languages that I just had to buy it and haul it home on the plane from Newfoundland. I'm sure it has more interesting definitions for things nautical than the ones found in a conventional dictionary.
I'm going to play fruit basket upset with all the personal items left on lounge chairs by the CHairhOGS...put one person's book with another person's flip flop.
