What is it (small box on the deck with windows)

Recommended Posts


Wreaths (on English ships at least)  were no longer used on new ships built from about 1703 so this ship is likely 17th century.   The carvings are more ornate than would be found on ships built in the 18th century.  Do you have the name of the ship in the photos?

Both photo's a[ear to use tillers on the Weather Decks, if so, poor location or a Binnacle so I would guess is the the source for fresh eggs and an ocasional chicken dinner, a Chicken Coop.

I'm not sure the front one (bottom photo) are windows but maybe a painted decoration?   


The rear (upper photo) I can accept that those are windows since the helmsman was more than likely there as there's no helm on the weather deck.  Windows there would make sense so he could see the sails, etc.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
