Native English speakers, I can't understand this so please help?
So I was reading this book which is full of nautical terms and slang, I came across a passage where a chief bosun's mate yells 'boats' as he jumps back onboard to his yacht from visiting a friend on another boat. What did he mean by 'boats' ?
For your reference I have provided you with the original context (screenshot) down below

could be from the passage "boats" was a nickname.
