the first word could also be rat, which sounds a bit like red.
A sailor doesn't have to be a pirate, but he has a girl in every harbour.

so: red ... herring?

Im wondering if the second word is Pirate, the line

Quote
What does a sailor do that defines him in the popular imagination?

makes me think of something along the lines of 'Hello Sailor!'. But I cannot think of how that would apply.

EDIT: unless its (bit rude)

  Jolly Roger


But that cannot be it! Its probably something to do with drinking.

Flea Market

Flea for the plague vector and Market from what a sailor does (sail...hence "sale") so a "Flea Sale" or "Flea Market" to fit the 11 word length (I hope the space counts)


Or maybe not....Looking back on hints I think that's not it...Hmmmmm...

No correct answers yet, although Adeel is kinda right (but on the wrong word).  Up till now we've had a bit of a theme going in terms of the answers.... (roll) ;)
