Quick Reference

Pieces of squared timber fitted fore and aft between the deck beams of a wooden ship. Their purpose is to provide support for the deck planking; in ships built of steel the usual practice is to lay a steel deck directly on the beams with planking, where necessary, laid on the steel. In yachtbuilding and small wooden vessel construction, carlings carry the half beams in the way of hatches and other deck openings, supporting the coamings of the hatches or the coach-roof above them. See also shipbuilding.
