masts used to support ship's boat

Recommended Posts

Hi there:


I don't know if this is the right forum for this question, but....


I know that frequently ship's boats were stowed on deck supported by spare masts laid down across gallows bitts. But would these masts have been completely shaped and finished in the same way as the installed masts or would they have simply been poles cut to length and unshaped.....any wisdom on this question would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!
