- v. To haul upwards
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Are there endless funds to bailout entire industries, jumpstart the economy with public works, and begin to seriously uphaul health care?
Control: Hold the rig out of the water by the uphaul.
To do this, hold the uphaul (a line on the mast) with both hands, reach across with your forward hand (the one closest to the bow), and grab the boom about six inches from the end.
An uphaul and a downhaul keep the poles under control, while allowing the headsails to spill wind after a cross wave thereby steadying the motion.
