"Stows" es un uso poco común para decir:"storage lockers/ bins/ racks". "Stowing" significa guardar algo de forma organizada/ compacta/ donde no se vea/ donde esté dificil de encontrar.

En la vida de los marinos por razón del poco espacio personal que tienen todo tiene que estar "stowed away" queriendo decir bien guardado y ordenado.

Yo sé que Stowaway es un individuo que se montó al barco sin pagar, ese sería otro significado para la combinación de palabras.
