Mamihlapinatapai is a word from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego, listed in The Guinness Book of World Records as the “most succinct word”, and is considered one of the hardest words to translate. It describes “a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start.” (via Martin)
What does this have to do with boats? Not much, but it seems like a very useful word for boaters and lubbers alike. Also, the Yaghans live near Cape Horn. They used to live naked there in freezing temperatures.
