I've never managed to encorporate it into writing, but I once scored a 50 point bonus in Scrabble with the word "anoopsia." That was back when my mom let me look through the dictionary for words, I was like 12.

I love so many words, but here are a few that come to mind:
embarking
queue
nautical
maritime
buoy
