I was reading this Wikipedia entry when I came across a new (to me) word meaning:
The ship was warped (hauled by anchor) along the eastern waterfront of the city to the southern side of the harbor
Upon further investigation, it turns out the English verb "to warp" has a specific meaning in the nautical world:
To move (a ship) along by hauling on a rope attached to a stationary object on shore.
The translations offered by Google (deformar, torcer, even pervertir) are mostly relative to the main meaning of "to become twisted or bent". It also includes alabear which seems to have something to do with woodworking -- not relevant.
Some Spanish words like remolcar or jalar are related to this, but they do not convey the full meaning.
Is there a word in Spanish that can be used to translate "to warp" in its nautical meaning?
