binnacle

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Parts of the Ship

THE BINNACLE:

The binnacle, usually near the steering wheel, is a shelf/cabinet used to hold the compass, lanterns, and half-hour glass. It is also usually a waist high case or stand on the deck of the ship, mounted in front of the captain or helmsman, upon or within which navigational instruments are placed for quick and easy reference. Early binnacles were made of timber and nails, but were found later to have caused magnetic deviations in compass readings. This was fixed by John Gray of Liverpool in 1854 by incorporating adjustable correcting magnets on screws or rack and pinions.

Aboard the Quarter Deck of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour, near the steering Wheel is the binnacle. This would also have been located near the hutch on the original HMS that would have been where the poultry would have been kept in front of the wheel.

This article is by Thomas Baurley, volunteer tour guide of the HMB Endeavour while in port at Brisbane, Australia, and crew member during the 2011-2012 circumnavigation of Australia - for the Brisbane to Gladstone leg of the journey (April-May 2011).

THE HUTCH:

What is referred to as the Ship's Hutch was nothing more than a cabinet with a set of shelves, drawers, or a larger cabinet where poultry was kept on board.

Aboard the Quarter Deck of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour, near the steering Wheel or helm is the "hutch". There would have been a hutch on the original HMS that would have been where the poultry would have been kept in front of the wheel.

capstan

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Parts of the Ship

THE CAPSTAN:

A large winch that has a vertical axis and used to hoist heavy spars, yards, and is also utilized in manuevering the ship while at anchor. It is a vertical axled rotating wheel developed for tall sailing ships to apply force to cables, ropes, and hawsers. It operates similar the windlass which is a horizontal winch of like-fashion. The word comes from the French "capestan" meaning "pulley cord" and the latin "capistrum" meaning to "take hold of". The word itself is believed to be of Spanish invention. The earliest capstans were often large timbers mounted vertically through a vessel's structure that was free to rotate. It had levers or bars affixed through holes at the top of the timber used to turn the capstan. Ropes wrapped several turns around the drum was then hauled upon and wound in a clockwise direction. These earlier models, evolved to wooden drums or barrels mounted on a iron axle which allowed crew to be on two decks to apply force to the bars. These later evolved to iron construction, with gearing in the head allowing mechanical use when the bars are pushed counter-clockwise. Shafts and gears for mechanization are usually found below deck. Modern capstans are powered hydraulically, electrically, or mechanically via a engine.

Atop the Quarter Deck of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour, resides the "capstan". This is at the stern of the boat. The capstan is a winch that has a vertical axis used to hoist heavy spars, yards, and utilized in maneuvering the ship while at anchor. Ten bars would be inserted and pushed in by crew and on the original HMS be solely worked by the crew's manual labor. Today on the HMB this is still done during rigging work.

tiller

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Parts of the Ship

THE TILLER:

The tiller is a heavy timber beam that is attached to the stern post and rudder. It is connected to the wheel by tackles and rope. It is a lever attached to the rudder post or stock and is classic to tall sailing ships. It is used by the captain or helmsman by directly pulling or pushing it, but can be moved remotely via the tiller lines. Rapid or excessive movement will cause increased drag and will brake or slow the boat. When used for steering, its always moved in the direction opposite of which the bow of the boat is to move. So if the tiller is moved to port side (left), the bow will turn to starboard (right). If tiller is moved to starboard, the bow will turn port. Sailing students use the phrase "Tiller Towards Trouble" to help them remember.

On top of the Quarter Deck or stern area of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour near the Wheel or "helm" which is manned by two crew men at all times - one on each side of it. This "wheel" is connected to the tiller by ropes run around the wooden drum up and through a set of blocks. On the HMB, there is a "kick-up" on the tiller that allows it to pass over the chimney from the Great Cabin's stove. The capstan is a winch that has a vertical axis used to hoist heavy spars, yards, and utilized in maneuvering the ship while at anchor. Ten bars would be inserted and pushed in by crew and on the original HMS be solely worked by the crew's manual labor. Today on the HMB this is still done during rigging work.

Ship’s Bell

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Life on the Sea, Parts of the Ship

The Ship's Bell:

The Ship's Bell was used as a timekeeper. It was usually made of bronze and often had the ship's name engraved on it. It was usually the job of the ship's cook or his staff to shine the bell daily. It was also used for foggy conditions to safely pass through areas. It was also rung when officers and dignitaries came aboard or left the ship. The ship's bell, was used to tell the time of day for all the crew and officer's to be guided by. The bell would be struck each half hour. Most crew would have a watch of four hours. A four hour watch was comprised of one to eight bell rings. One hour is indicated by two bell strikes struck close together.

  • 1 bell ~ 12:30 or 16:30
  • 2 bells ~ 13:00 or 17:00
  • 3 bells ~ 13:30 or 17:30
  • 4 bells ~ 10:00 or 14:00 or 18:00
  • 5 bells ~ 10:30 or 14:30
  • 6 bells ~ 11:00 or 15:00
  • 7 bells ~ 11:30 or 15:30
  • 8 bells ~ 12:00 or 16:00

Onboard the Upper or Main Deck of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour. Facing and directly in front of the bowsprit from the waist of the ship, lies the Ship's Bell.

seats of ease

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Life on the Sea, Parts of the Ship

SEATS OF EASE:

The onboard, above deck latrine used in historic sailing vessels was called the "Seats of Ease". This is very similar to the guarderobe in castles. It was a also called the "ship's head" and was the sanitary facility aboard the ship. These were written about even as early as 600 B.C.E. on a ivory plaque from the sanctuary of Artemis Orthia in Sparta. This is reprinted in the “Those Vulgar Tubes. External sanitary accommodations aboard European ships of the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries” by Joe Simmons. A good historical archaeological paper is written on the excavation of one here: http://www.qaronline.org/techSeries/QAR-B-09-02.pdf. These became popular in historic ships by the late 17th century, with European use documented from 1670-1689 C.E. taking on a keyhole shape similar to the Roman's stone seats so one would know which way to sit. These commonly were placed on both sides of the bow, sometimes equipped with drainage pipes to direct the excrement down to the sea, while many others were just open holes down to the water below. For the captain and officers, separate "seats of ease" called "quarter galleries" were located at the stern of the ship, and offered a bit more privacy from the rest of the crew - otherwise would have been style the same. The seats on the bow were quite dangerous in rough weather, but always served to keep the area clean with the constant splashing of the waves on and over the bow. "pissdales" were added on to ships later, as metallic urinals or tubes, as lead funnels, leading overboards, along the side of the ship for "No. 1".

Aboard the Upper or Main Deck of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour, by sides of the bowsprit and catheads, were the infamous "seats of ease". On the HMB Endeavour, this along with the bow, was made of Western Australian jarrah while the original HMS would have been oak or elm. These were used by the crew in the original days. The modern HMB has flushing toilets down on the 20th century deck. As toilet paper was not used back in the day of the HMS, rags or frayed ends of rope would be used to wipe with sea water.

windlass

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Parts of the Ship

WINDLASS:

The windlass is a horizontal winch, barrel, round timber, or machine used on ships to hoist or release heavy equipment on board. It is most notably used for the ship's anchor or a fishing trawl. On modern ships, these are mechanical and are usually called the "anchor windlass machine" which restrains and manipulates the anchor chain or rope on a boat, allowing for it to be hoisted or lowered. This has a notched wheel that engages the links of the chain or rope. A "trawl windlass" is a similar machine that operates the trawl or large net on fishing boats in like fashion. Each of these come with brakes to control the operation and for safety. Most today are electric or hydraulic motor operated by means of a gear train. The windlass and its mechanism is typically found above deck. Sometimes a "devil's claw" device was added to anchor chains as a turnbuckle, attached to the base of the anchor windlass, with a metal hook and two curved fingers to grab one link of a chain, as a chain stopper and to hold the anchor chain in place.

Aboard the Upper or Main Deck of the HMB Endeavour, which is architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour, is the giant windlass. On the Endeavour, it is located just before the bowsprit and bow. This was used to hoist and release the main anchors off of the catheads. This was operated by the crew's manual labor by use of the long wooden bars located just front of the waist of the ship. The modern Endeavour has a built in motor secretly hidden in their windlass. This was simply a large rotating barrel around which the cables were wound. It was fitted with removable bars the seaman could use to pull downwards on to rotate it. A braking system was installed to prevent crew members from slipping backwards.

catheads

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Parts of the Ship

CATHEADS:

The Catheads are large timbers or wooden beams extending forward of the bow one on each side of the bowsprit angled usually roughly at 45 degrees. They are used to support the ship's anchor to hoist and release anchors by means of a windlass, turned mechanically in the modern era, or manually by crew labor in the olden days. On older 16th-18th century ships, the seats of ease were often put to the sides of the catheads. Sometimes the catheads are furnished with sheaves on the outer end, with the inner end (called the cat's tail) fits down on the cat beam. A stopper called the "cat stopper" fastens the anchor on the cathead. The size of the cathead is usually relevant to the weight of the anchor and to keep it away from the wooden side of the ship to prevent damage. In ships of old, these catheads were carved to resemble the faces of cats or lions. Its first name usage was sometime in the 17th century.

Onboard the Upper or Main Deck of the HMB Endeavour architecturally based over the original drawings of the HMS Endeavour are the two large and long black timbers which are catheads. These are used to raise and lower the anchors being pulled up using the windlass, a horizontal winch turned manually by the crew's manual labor by use of the long wooden bars located just front of the waist of the ship. Next to the catheads are the seats of ease used by the crew in the original days.

quarter windows

Dec 31
Posted by leafworks Filed in Parts of the Ship

QUARTER WINDOWS:

On tall sailing ships, quarter windows would exist to ventilate the quarters and provide light. These were sometimes decorated. Sometimes these would have a "quarter badge" as a badge shaped carving around the two small quarter windows at the stern.

Aboard the HMB Endeavour, the replica of the HMS Endeavour are several "quarter windows". While there originally was no figurehead on the Endeavour, there were quarter windows that had been decorated with carved badge and the stern with other simple carvings. For the HMB, these were recreated based off of crew artist Sydney Parkinson drawings.
