The time now is: Today Marine diesel engines and gas turbines 9 edition - D.

Woodyard [, PDF]. Ship's steam and gas turbines. The Ship of the Line: How to Build Them: Davis, a naval architect of unusual practical experience in the building of ships and also ship models, at once resulted in a demand for additional information on this fascinating subject.


Not content with building a block model, a greater knowledge of ships developed a desire for information on the framing of the "built-up" model. Ship model builders in all parts of the country required details on the deck furniture of various types of vessels at different periods and also on the thousand and one things that the ship builder and rigger must know in order to practice his craft. Desiring to supply the particular information required by model builders, a questionnaire was sent to everyone who had downloadd, direct from the Society, a copy of Ship Models, and a large number of replies was received.

In an attempt to meet this demand, in part, at least, Mr. Davis has written this book and made a large number of drawings which illustrate, in working detail, the construction of the more important fittings of the ship, its masting and rigging. The whole subject is so extensive that the critical expert is likely to persuade himself that he must collect a library of original source books, but it is believed that The Ship Model Builder's Assistant and its predecessor, Ship Models: How to Build Them, are useful working manuals that present, in practical form, comprehensive directions on building ship models correctly and in proper proportion.

Elmer F. Tanner, model builder, of Boston, on several occasions has supplied valuable advice. With a high appreciation of Mr.

Davis' expert knowledge and ability, Mr. Malcolm B. Stone and Mr. William B.

Northey have watched with enthusiasm the inception and growth of this volume and at every stage they have given advice and criticism. All model builders, using this book, will be under obligation to these three men. Packets and clippers had a pedigree of their own, as it were, and the newspapers gave long, glowing descriptions of them and their records were given columns in the newspapers, while the rank-and-file would be dismissed in a line in the marine column, reading-"Ship Betsy, Sharp, from Madeira.

They were the common wall-sided, flat-floored, bluffbowed and heavy, square-transomed ships with which everyone was so familiar that they were just ships and nothing more. Today, looking back and reviewing all the different types of ships, those little, three hundred ton ships, of about , with their decks laid out with the same simplicity that characterized the schooners and brigs, are a novelty.

They had one big, main-cargo hatch just forward of the mainmast. Fiferails, of course, were around each mast, at the deck, for belaying the gear. A fore-scuttle was forward of the foremast and a cuddy, aft, giving access to the after quarters.

A log windlass lay across the decks, just abaft the foremast, with a pair of stout bitts at the heel of the bowsprit. Away aft was P.

This constituted the visible deck furniture. To appreciate what the smaller, single-decked ship really was, one should look at some of the old whalers, as many merchantmen, when worn out from carrying heavy cargoes, have been sold and used for whaling; to float around under topsails, as an ocean tramp, for the remainder of their days.

The shape of ship's hulls, in various decades, has gone through a gradual development that may be traced with some accuracy; but the way in which the decks and houses were built has varied so at all times that no one particular arrangement can be called a standard, for it depended on what trade she was built for or employed in and then, too, the size of the vessel always called for various layouts.

Small ships, single-decked ships, as they were called, because they had only one deck, laid dunnage boards over the top of their ballast on which to stow their cargo. This was called a slave-deck and its presence in a vessel was one way by which the menof-war's men could identify a slaver. Even the presence of lumber on board, with which to build such a deck, was considered sufficient evidence to convict.

The female slaves were crowded into the after cabin or partitioned off in the after end of the craft. The officers and crew gave up their quarters below, to accommodate the slaves, and slept at night in what were called "sleeping boxes. It is said that the peanut, a native of South America, found its way into the United States by way of Africa, having been carried by the slavers as food for the slaves.

When the depth of hold increased, during the packet ship days, another deck became necessary and this, between the main and lower decks, was called the between deck, pronounced "'tween decks," by sailors. Some large ships had another deck, away down in the bottom, and this fourth deck was called the orlop deck.

In building ship models, it is the upper decks that mainly concern us. Men-of-war called the main deck, the gun-deck, and the upper deck was called the spar deck.

Between the forecastle and the quarter-deck, covering the gun-deck on frigates, were gangways, a narrow strip of deck along each side, just wide enough to cover the guns below and connecting the two so that the sail trimmers had free access fore and aft. Merchant ships built with a continuous upper deck, are said to have a spar deck. The poop deck is the raised deck, aft, and the forecastle head is the raised deck, forward.Two single blocks were seized around the bowsprit; one near the outer end and the other in about six feet or so.

Our bark carried a crew of eight men and the stranger probably stowed about thirty in her forecastle. Sailors were a hard-headed, hard-fisted, practical set of men and they had leisure to do a lot of thinking and much of this was devoted to their ship's appearance.

Where cheeks were bolted on, to form a ledge for the trestle-trees, the mast was said to be cheeked. Although at currencies this diversity of following server circumstances was completely even ' create ' for me, the rising Now of Fees about club apps and Visual subjects and providers for further school consent marginalised.

At each mast there IS a solid packing of wood of the same thickness as the beams, and bracing it to the heavy beams are breast knees.

Woodyard [, PDF]. The first thing to get clear in mind is the fact that there were two classes of spars used, booms and yards.

The jaws of the gaff were held to the spencer mast by the usual parrel strap,-a piece of tarred ratline stuff with eight or ten lignumvitae beads or parrels to keep it from sticking as the gaff was hoisted or lowered, by means of a single becket block, hooked into an eye in the top of the gaff, at the jaws, and a double-block, Spel1cer mast altd gaff.
