X is for xebec

Xebec, according to some is a small ship like a galley used by Barbary pirates and Algerian corsairs. Love the imagination that fires. Meaningful “X” words are few and far between when it comes relevant paddle making words.

At least Xebec has something watery in its core meaning. If it was good enough for Algerian corsairs and Barbary pirates, then I guess it is good enough for me.
