- Hull of an American man-of-war cut open amidships from stem to stern
Hull of an American man-of-war cut open amidships from stem to stern. The sailors aloft, lined along the foot ropes of the main-yard are furling the mainsail. There are 5 decks running the length of the ship and in the stern a short sixth deck called the poop or quarters-deck where the steering is done. Directly under this highest deck are 7, the captain's cabin; and 8, his dining-room; below that again are 13, the officers' cabins and 14, their dining-room; below them is 20, the sick-bay. Near the bow of the ship, on the berth deck (second from the top), we have 9, the cook's galley, 10, the midshipmen's cabin, and 11, the sailors' berths. Below that comes the gun deck with exercise rooms and 17, the sailors' mess room. On the fourth deck down beside the large sail and cordage loft, there are 23, the prison, and various storerooms. The fifth deck down is completely for storage.
