Talisman       Hard rocky bottom.
Talkative       Sandy bottom.
Talker       Soft mud bottom.
Tallness       She is hung by the head.
Talmud             Do.       amidships.
Talmudical             Do.       by the stern.

Tandem       Sea sweeps right over her
Tangent       She is submerged at high water.
Tangential       The tide flows in and out of her.
