The Daily Feud: Avast! A Seagoing Feud by El_Kabong [Game Over]

DO NOT READ THIS THREAD BEFORE YOU POST YOUR ANSWERS

Object of the game: Try to think of the most popular answer, to get the most people matching you. Only answers that are “serious” will be scored. Joke answers will not be considered, as it is not fair to other players.

Scoring - Any answer duplicated by anyone else is worth 100 points divided by the number of entrants. For example: 50 entrant game = 2 pts per answer. If 4 people match that means they each get 8 pts for that answer. No matches = 0 points.

If any of you have ideas for Feuds -and would like me to score them- PM me and I’ll get you on The List.

FORMATTING OF ANSWERS IS IMPORTANT!

Write your answers like this; Do not repeat the questions, no periods at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. If you need to comment or clarify your answers, do it AFTER the list of answers. Thanks.
JUST LIKE THIS:

1. answer <<—There is a space after the period!
2. response
3. rejoinder

The game will end either when we have 50 entrants, or at 4:00 PM Central on Wednesday, 10/22/08 whichever comes first.

Good luck!

My first thought for #1 was the Battle of Tsushima (1905). I was also thinking about the battleship Potemkin for some reason.
For #2 I originally had “sloop”, but that’s going to be ranked #3 or so.
My answer for #8 would be Rotterdam, but I bet London wins this feud easily.
#6 might be the Panama Canal, but I’m hoping for a middle-USA-centric response.
