Humour

After countless hours of simpsons rules and re-lofting fair lines, the numbed naval architects mind is a playground for the humourous thought. Here then is a page dedicated to diversion.

Euphemisms & Suggestiveness

  • Unit Erections: Ships are built in blocks and superblocks, but to put them together requires a unit erection - and the unit erection sequence.
  • Spoon Bow: Icebreakers often have suggestive shapes, with their spoon bows and reamers.
  • Stern Tube: The stern tube is a euphemistic gold mine, with shafting and stuffing boxes.
