Quick Reference

The canvas cover set up over a companion hatch or a skylight to give protection from sun and rain. In older sailing ships, it was the tarred canvas covering the eyes of the standing rigging to keep water out and thus prevent the rope from rotting. It was also the name given to the top of the galley chimney, which was made to turn round so that the galley smoke might go down to leeward.
