Description Clinker-type frame timber of oak. This is a "grown" timber; that is, it is fashioned from part of a tree where a natural junction provides the basis for the required shape. The bottom of the frame has been squared off to accommodate a keel approximately 90 mm wide. On one side of the keel (the right-hand in this photograph) a 30-mm square cut has been made. This is to create a passage (limber-hole) to allow water to drain freely to a well where it can be pumped or baled. Above this, a series of stepped recesses on the outer edge of the frame indicates at least four runs of overlapping clinker planking. The first three strakes flare evenly upwards, while the fourth shows a distinct flattening out. This suggests a flared V-bottom such as might be expected towards one or other of the vessel's extremities. Scale 50 cm. (Cat No 104/A12578)
