Exclamation denoting surprise on the part of the speaker.
Official definition: When the masts (or timbers) of a ship were shaken by a large wave, the sailors were startled by the noise.
Alternative definition: a mistranslation by by landlubbers. What the pirate is actually saying is Shave hermit embers!.
Pirate folklore tells of a hermit who lived for many years in a cave. One day, pirates began digging for treasure outside the cave. The hermit offered to help, and the crew made him a present of a case of rum and an open razor.
Well, it had been a long time since the hermit had had a drink, and he drank half the barrel in one go. In his drunken state, he started to strop his razor furiously when it slipped, struck the cave wall, and a spark ignited the rum fumes on his breath. The hermit exploded, and smouldering embers of burnt recluse fell on the pirates. One went rigid with shock, 2 fainted, and four of them shat themselves.
