A lash up

What does "A lash up" mean?

Today it means: A bad job, disorganised, rushed task, poorly done.

A "lash" or "lashing" is a short piece of rope used to carry out an emergency repair or tie something up quickly to stop it moving around the deck. Usually a temporary fix so its not really meant to last for a long time so would have to be re-done at some point.
