    Question Right off

    Hi everyone,

    I just saw in a film the expression:

    "Right off our own coast, German U-boats prowled the waters, looking for a kill."

    What does right off mean in such a context? I haven't found it anywhere.

    Thanks!

    In this instance, right off means "a short distance from."
