The antiquated nautical term for the source of drinking water on sea-going vessels has the derived meaning of slang, gossip, chitta chatta, rumour etc.
The site of this life- sustaining liquid on board was also the bed from which the grapevine of social gossip did sprout. As such, the chance to catch up with friends over a glass of good wine is the perfect occasion for Skuttlebutt.
