Quick Reference

A short deck above the after end of the poop seen in many French and Spanish warships during the days of sailing navies, where the master or pilot had his cabin. It was known in English shipbuilding as a topgallant poop, possibly because the gunports were usually decorated with garlands, a typical English practice with regard to upper-deck gunports. Some of the largest British warships incorporated this deck to accommodate the upper coach.
