(nautical) a well where seepage drains to be pumped away
- I am well aware that this is a tough job.
- Say no bilge water about the mater.
- The bread crisped up for you didn't wrap it well.
- One can not learn a language well unless one works hard.
- The old well was bricked up when it ran dry.
- The sideshows will fetch in the people as well.
