The ships of the nautical seafarer
There are many different kinds of ships. There are also special words used in the Marine environment
and Naval Architecture. What do the colorful flags stand for? What are the special markings on the hull? Where are the living quarters? Where are the tanks? Where is the main engine? Where is the propeller and rudder?
What is it like working on a tanker? How is the life on board a bulker like? Or a container ship?
Or a passenger cruise ship?
How does a ship float? How is it propelled? How is it steered?
What are the tools used?
In this section we explore ship construction, and practices. They help us to understand more about the life on board ship.
