What Do You Call...?

So, over in Buying a Boat, sailingdog cautioned the OP: "It is a good idea to get a handle on the terminology and vocabulary of sailing, ..." I agree. In that spirit, I have a few questions:
  • What is the proper term for the "ceiling" of the spaces under the deck. E.g.: The cabin's "ceiling?"
  • What is the proper term for the deck space between the sides of the cabin and the edge of the deck (topside, of course)?
  • What is the name of the raised bit that surrounds the cockpit?
  • What do you call the tops and sides of the bits upon which you sit, in the cockpit (one or both of which will oft times contain a lazarette)?
That's all I can think of atm.

Thanks,
Jim

- Headliner. That goes for boats, cars, vans and trucks. The material lining the inside of the roof is called the headliner.

- Sidedecks

- Coaming

- Cockpit seats, with a hatch to access the lazarettes.

I can at least tell you what "I" know these parts as, but no gaurantee on their correctness, and I am sure the folks here will be more than happy to make sure I don't steer you wrong!

-Overhead
-Sidedecks
-Coamings
-Settee

The settee is the "couch" in the cabin. The dining table is the Dinette.

Just to trow you a curve ball, There is a ceiling on a boat, it's spelling sealing, and is a surface , normaly wood that is fastened inside of the framing to seal the hull from shifting cargo.

A headliner is the material covering the overhead.
The benches in the cockpit are usualy called benches or seats not settees, those are inside.
The inside should be refered to as down below, or below decks, Unless you have more then one deck, in wich case, Its lower deck, upper deck, and top deck.

Just try to remember when your in a house, that someone on the second floor isn't , on deck

Only sailers would have so much time to come up with all these terms -- sitting around over a few drinks trying to come up with names which don't correlate with any regular word of the English language

As a new sailer, part of the pride of sailing is using the words in their correct context. Just doing that is a challange. But using the word in the heat of the moment, exactly when you need them is sometimes difficult.

"Hey, throw me over that rope."

But if your talking boat paint, topside could also mean the Hull.
