I feel this subject may deserve a wider audience in History or Quarterdeck unless you or anyone else has strong views about this matter I will move the thread.

Not standing from under may have the same result as standing in direct line of recoil. Actually, try not standing in direct line of recoil when working on the casing during harbour stations...there just ain't no place to hide!
Do not stand in a bight or coil either...common sense really.

Stand from under was also used to warn a miscreant that punishment was coming their way if continuing down the same route.
