Mackerel.
Mackerel: a Skad or a Joe Bunger to you?

We all have strange words for certain things that, on occasions, can leave people quite confused. What on earth did you mean by that?! Do you understand any of the slightly odd words used by the Richardson family?
GLOSSARY: What would you say?
Slang TermDefinition of term

When the tide overpowers your boat and sweeps you round

AgajaggersA low-lying mist along the shoreline
BlankA disappointing catch
Skads/Policemen/Joe BungersMackerel (horse mackerel)

What words would you use to describe the same things? We'd really like to know. And if enough of you contribute, we can compile a Kentish dictionary!
