English term or phrase: `Aye, Darry, ye ken dole neara forty kil a doy,\' ...
`Aye, Darry, ye ken dole neara forty kil a doy,' said the first mate.
`Nay, Peta. Beeng oot to King's Lynn wi' it, whin aul check, the winnie neara blown the cran' shaff', said Darrell.
`Gaa. Darr, you in King's, goo-ann, just lik the tame you slooped the crank wi' yo teeth,' said the second mate, followed by guffaws".

This is a dialogue from "Seventeen Years. Take Note", a story by Lynn Scott Myers (in "Pleasures. Women and Erotica" (ed. by Lonnie Barbach), Perrenial Library, New York, 1985).

I'd like to know a" Standard-English" equavalent of this dialogue. It is very difficult to understand if you are not a native speaker.
