Re: THAT Price for one View?

Payed is not an American thing. it's like confusing to and too.

To pay out a rope or cable is to let out by slacking.

The captain payed out additional rope for the sails.

The construction works payed out the cable as he strung the line.

Laying down telephone lines, he payed out the cable as he went.

Payed can also refer to the sealing of a deck or hull of a wooden ship with pitch or tar to prevent leakage.

Have you payed the deck?

This ship looks fine but has yet to be payed.
