A deck is a level on a ship. Decks ensure weathertightness of a vessels hull, as well as providing a working location & storage support. Decks are major contributors to longitudinal strength.



Decks may possess sheer and/or camber. Both of these characteristics provide strength and prevent the pooling and accumulation of water, at the expense of buildability and minor complication to lashing and cargo stowage arrangements.
