RE: Boat terms just for the fun of it

Eric, wikipedia seems to agree with my memory:

"Traditionally, sailing ships were commanded from the quarter deck, aft of the mainmast. With the arrival of paddle steamers, engineers required a platform from which they could inspect the paddle wheels and where the captain's view would not be obstructed by the paddle houses. A raised walkway, literally a bridge, connecting the paddle houses was therefore provided. When the screw propeller superseded the paddle wheel, the bridge was retained."

*Maybe not, but it pays to have a boat not looking like all the others.

On a few of the other treads. There has been mention of where the deck meets the hull.

*Also known as the Deck Hinge.
