To SHIP

To SHIP, is either used actively, as to embark any person, or put any thing aboard-ship; or passively, to receive any thing into a ship; as we shipped a heavy sea at three o'clock in the morning.

To SHIP, also implies to fix any thing in its place; as, to ship the ears, i.e. to fix them in their row-locks. To ship the swivel-guns, is to fix them in their sockets, &c.
