maneuver (one) out of (something)

To cause one to lose something or to not do something through subtle, duplicitous, or fraudulent manipulation. She maneuvered her siblings out of accepting their rights to their parents' estate so that she would have sole control over it.

manoeuvre the apostles

obsolete To borrow or take money from one person or source to repay the debt of another (i.e., rob Peter to pay Paul). Primarily heard in UK. Mr. Hardy's firm has fallen into arrears of late, and the solicitor has been manoeuvring the apostles just to keep the business viable.
See also: apostle, manoeuvre

manoeuvring the apostles

obsolete The act of borrowing or taking money from one person or source to fund or repay the debt of another. A variant of "robbing Peter to pay Paul," which means the same. Primarily heard in UK. Mr. Hardy's law firm has fallen into arrears of late, and he's taken to manoeuvering the apostles just to keep the business afloat. Never pay a debt by taking on more debt—that's just manoeuvering the apostles, and it never works for long.

Based on these ideas, three approaches are presented to diminish the drift of hydrodynamic coefficients, including simplification of the manoeuvring model, difference of the samples, and the method of additional signal.
Sensitivity analysis provides another way to simplify the mathematical model of ship manoeuvring [49-53].
Besides simplification of the mathematical model of ship manoeuvring, reconstruction of the input variables or samples provides another effective way to alleviate the parameter drift.
Such a method had been successfully applied to the identification of ship manoeuvring by analyzing simulation data [23] and captive model test results [54].
As a result, the manoeuvring characteristics of the original system, which might cause the parameter drift as described in the Section 3.1, are changed and the parameter drift can be alleviated resultantly.
It is noted that the design of additional signal depends on the characteristic of the data samples or the manoeuvring motion.
The details of the mathematical model of ship manoeuvring, the SVM methodology, the ship, and the model tests can be found in [24] and relevant literature.
Parameter identifiability is an important issue for the SI application to the modeling of ship manoeuvring. Some parameters in the manoeuvring model cannot be obtained using SI, while some parameters deviate from true values even if they can be derived.
