a floorlike surface wholly or partially occupying one level of a hull, superstructure, or deckhouse
, generally cambered, and often serving as a member for strengthening the
*structure of a vessel."
How should we count decks to describe our vessels?
My Coot has two exterior levels: (1) the main 360-degree deck and (2) the roof of the saloon.
The interior has four levels: (1) saloon, (2) engine room, (3) master stateroom, and (4) pilothouse.* However, the first three are all at the "bottom" of the boat while the pilothouse is atop the enginehouse and is at the same level as the main exterior deck.
So, what's the total number of decks?* Somewhere between two*and six.* But what's the "correct" number.
The builder owes me a "P."
PS.* I'd*say three.*
