    The short answer Jason.
    A chippy is a slang term for anyone who works with wood, such as a joiner or a carpenter.

    It can, however, be a lot more convoluted than that.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.
