I suppose it might have been worth pointing out that most shanties were modified to suit the circumstance of the ship and the voyage ("leave her, Johnny" is a case in point) but others were almost always sung in the "official" version, such as "Poor old man". Fo'c'sle songs were , as far as my info goes, more commonly known as "forebitters" as they were frequently sung at the forebitts. Otherwise it's a good summation.
