SEWED

SEWED, the situation of a ship which rests upon the ground till the depth of water sufficient to float her is diminished by the reflux of the tide. Thus if a ship runs aground on the tide of ebb, and it be required to know if she has sewed, the water line or mark on her side, stem, or stern-post, where the surface of the water reaches when she is a float, is examined, and this mark being found above the water, she is laid to be sewed by as much as is the difference.
