Painter applying a coating to a vessel hull. Palm ----Flattened top portion of rudder stock (for bolted connection). Also, a flat surface at the end of a strut or stanchion. Panama chock ----A steel casting used for line handling - from one vessel to another vessel or to the dock. Developed for use in the Panama canal (?). Panting ----An in-and-out movement of plating; to pulsate or throb. Panting may be caused by the lift and fall of a ship in a seaway, or by engine vibration.

Peak ----A narrow compartment at either end of a vessel. Pillar ----A vertical member or column which provides support to a deck girder. (Also termed a stanchion.) Pilot House ----An enclosed place in which the main steering wheel, controls, engine room, telegraph, etc., are located. A wheel house. This pad eye is just forward of the rudder, and would be used to hold a chain fall when the crew are working on the propeller. In this picture, the vessel is on dry-dock, and we are looking up at the bottom of the hull. Painting a vessel hull ----Vessels must be removed from the water to apply coatings. This Pintle ----A pin on which a rudder hinges. Pitch ----Spacing; as of rivets or gear teeth.

In shipyards the plate is usually shaped cold. Plates bent in a press may be refered to as 'shaped' or 'flanged' plate. Profile ----A side elevation of a ship's form. A view looking at the moulded lines from starboard to port. The waterlines and the frame lines are straight when observed from this direction.
