Lazarette aka Cuban locker has developed into one of those hilarious words. Of course there is a story behind it. No, I am not going to tell it here.
Below is borrowed from one of my favorite blogs s/v Veranda. ALL credit goes to them so cruise over to their blog and read the whole posting. However....
" Lazarette is actually French for “screaming baby receptacle”. Just open up the lid, slip the screaming child inside amongst the fenders and docklines, close it up tight and the noise goes away."
Now that is funny stuff. No, we don't have kids. Why do you ask?
