Carcas: the covering of a lamb.

Not so anonymous. I am August 11th, writer of the same hour. This is when the magic happens.

Webster says carcae is not to be found. Does this bother us or are we thinking outside of the books? If so, my ears tell me that 'carci' would make for better composition and, your second 'boat' would sail smoother as a 'ship'.

You know why I like it.

Yeah, carcae is not a word, but i still like it, carcasses with a latin twist (but OED will tell you it comes from old French"carcois") but i like the dipthong. these are working notes and thanks for the suggestions. also, with regards to the word "carcass": "3 the structural framework of a building, ship, or piece of furniture."
