Flogging Around the Fleet

This term traditionally referred to when a man was tied to a boat and flogged, as the boat toured through the entire fleet. This punishment was given for attempting to escape or for striking an officer. Today, this term is sometimes used when it is felt that a punishment is being done for the reason of optics.
