Abaft?

Today’s word is one I’ve never actually heard of, and I’ve definitely been in situations it would have been appropriate…

Abaft.

Apparently meaning “towards the stern of the ship”. It can be an adverb or a proposition apparently.

According to my research, the first use of the word was in the 14th century which does make sense in relation to ships as there was some notable naval developments in the century.

Has anyone ever heard of this word or used it in their every day life? #AskingForAFriend

When I looked for a stock photo for this post, this is all that would come up. So I guess the internet is also just as confused.
