ANTH 218 1-18-08 Structural Elements - bead= width - the keelson and keel sandwich the frame - the floor crosses the keel; what is attached to the floor is the futtock - break points are always overlapped - timber= any random chunk of boat - limber holes= drain pipes in the floor - cant frames= frames that are twisted to account for the pointy parts of the vessel; they tend to stop at the keelson - deadwood= dead space; it has to be there but it doesn’t do any good big pieces of wood used outside the vessel so the vessel is hydrodynamically sound - transom= a piece at the stern - butt scarf= weak, no friction between 2 pieces Structural details - stuff isn’t made out of one piece of wood; its made out of many pieces put together - stuff overlaps - scarf= joins between structural members of the ship - treenail: a wooden dowel; you split the end and put a wedge in so it doesn’t come out; it expands when it gets wet Mast’s and Sails - 2 kinds of sails 1. square: if the sail is perpendicular to the line of the keel
