Basic Hull Designs
distance  between  the  observer  and  the  ship  decreases, other  features  appear  until  a  complete  distant  view  is possible.  Actual  first  sighting  of  the  vessel  will  be  of masts,  kingposts,  funnels,  and  superstructure  because the  ship  will  be  hull  down.  The  vessel  must  then  be studied according to a definite plan. The most obvious method   is   to   start   forward   and   work   aft   noting   the prominent  features  in  sequence,  as  listed  below.  (See figure 27.) 1. Masts 2. Funnels 3. Kingposts 4. Cranes 5. Gantries Hull Design It   is   unlikely   that   the   hull   will   be   sufficiently distinct at a distance to enable an accurate initial report to be made. However, once the vessel is well above the horizon,  distinctive  features  begin  to  appear,  such  as stems  and  sterns.  These  features  can  be  added  to  your amplifying    report.    By    numbering    the    castles    from forward to aft, as in figure 28, an indication of the hull form can  be  given.  For  example,  a  three-island  ship is described as having hull form l-2-3, and ships that have no raised castles are classed as flush-decked vessels. For recognition purposes bows and sterns are  grouped  into  three  designs,  although  there  are 69
