    You can find lots of nautical terminology at this site: Sailors Choice Nautical Terms Index

    'trim' means well-balanced and sitting nicely in the water
    'bold' isn't used in a specifically nautical sense here - it suggests that the ship is courageous and brave. (Or really, that the sailors in her are brave)
