Note to Sturl Hryn 16II

[2] inn um borð ‘in over the gunwale’: F has the reading innanborðs ‘inside the gunwale’. It seems more natural that the waves were thrown over the gunwale, rather than thrown about inside it, so the reading of the other mss has been chosen here, as in Skj B and Skald. Konráð Gíslason (1895-7, I, 80) followed the reading of F, innanborðs ‘inside the gunwale’, but says in his notes that the reading of the other mss is better.
