chained_bear commented on the word after-broadside voice
I love this phrase. It reminds me of Cape Horn voice but isn't as loud.
"...they were securing their guns, bowsing all lashings taut and talking in the loud, after-broadside voice about their wonderful accuracy and speed."
--Patrick O'Brian, The Truelove, 220
Edit: See also foghorn voice.
