    I thought exactly the same thing, and from reading your "hol(d)ing up" thread, it does seem you have a slightly clueless transcriber. ;)

    "Expanse of water" is a common phrase which a transcriber might have recognized, when "expansive water" means nothing. ;)

    Yes, clearly they sound very similar and one was not paying attention.
