Under Enemy Colors
S. Thomas Russell
Three words that I found were

Bosun noun
a petty officer on a merchant ship who controls the work of other seamen

Subsequently adjective
occurring or coming later or after (often fol. by to): subsequent events; Subsequent to their arrival in Chicago, they bought a new car.
following in order or succession; succeeding: a subsequent section in a treaty.

Nautical A wooden or metal pole, such as a boom, yard, or bowsprit, used to support sails and rigging.
A usually metal pole used as part of a crane or derrick.
A main structural member in an airplane wing or a tail assembly that runs from tip to tip or from root to tip.

A quote that I picked was
"Is he aware of your... affairs in France, do you think?"
i picked this quote because i think that it is foreshadow. because Charles Hayden is the main character and his friend Robert said this to him when he was to become the first lieutenant of a ship. so I think It is foreshadow because the English is at war with the french and Charles Hayden went to France one because he is part french, two he went there for the revolution and he was part of a mob. He also works for the kings navy so if they find out he will never work again.
