English term or phrase:get clear
contexto.....How to manage a fight at sea, 1653
The captain gives the command: "make fast your grapplings," whereupon one reports to him: " Captain, we are fowl on each other, and the ship is on fire." Cut anything to get clear, and smother the fire with wet clothes.In such a case they will presently be such friends as to help one the other all they can to Get Clear, lest they both should burn together and sink, and if they be generous, the fire quenched, drink kindely one to another; heave their cans over board, and then begin again as before.
