English translation:toss overboard
Explanation:
Uncertain what this is about, but the non-existent word 'kastoverbord' is a combination of kast (toss or throw, imperative) and over bord (overboard). Davidsflaater is very nearly meaningless, but could possibly be life rafts or boats suspended in davits - as opposed to the free-fall launch rafts, which are lowered rather than tossed to the sea.
