Ship Components

A small portion of articulated hull structure has survived the elements; much of it was brought up in the spring of 2000. This small section of ship's structure was made up of numerous fragments of frame components and bottom planking with associated sacrificial planking or sheathing. A number of smaller fixtures and fittings were necessary for the Queen Anne's Revenge to operate successfully. Discover the different kinds of these fixtures and their role in the sailing of the ship by browsing around the images below.

Click on the images below to discover the different types of artifacts associated with the hull. You'll find everything from a sternpost to iron nails and from lead strips to sacrificial planking. Ever wonder how officers and pirate captains used the restroom while at sea? You'll find one implement that helped them with that task here.
