hogeye rate
A Hog-Eye in Missouri is a small compact place sunk in a hollow. There were once several places in Missouri called Hog-Eye.
A Hog-Eye was distinctive flat-bottom boat or barge used in the shallow waters surrounding San Francisco Bay during the California Gold Rush, named from the dismissive name 'ditch-hog' applied to rivermen by deep-water sailors.
The term "hog-eye" was used in early blues songs as a euphemism for the female genitalia.
Usage: We will have to use the hogeye to get to that part of the swamp.
