of the hull on either side of the keel up to where the sides begin. The most forward part of the boat is the stem. The outboard part of the stem that is below the surface is called the cutwater. Starting just abaft the stem and running fore and aft on both sides, there is usually a half-rounded  fender,  called  the  beading.  Abaft  the  stem is a ring (hoisting eye) and cleats, used for securing the boat's painter (which is the line used to make the boat fast by the bow. A similar line in the stern is called a stern fast.) At the after end is the sternpost. Somewhere in the bilges forward and aft, adjacent to the keelson (inside upper edge of the keel), every boat has a couple of screw plugs, which permit water to be drained out when the boat is out of the water. Each Navy boat has a set of strong hoisting eyes for attaching slings or boat falls when hoisting. (Large craft have several sets of hoisting padeyes and multiple slings or a rigid for  single  point  pickups.) All boats are equipped with a rudder for steering when underway. A rudder blade is attached to the rudder stock, which enters the hull through a stuffing box. The rudder is turned by a steering wheel attached to a system of  ropes,  push-pull  cables,  or  a  mechanically  or hydraulically operated arm attached to the rudder stock. Most boats 50 feet long or under are made of plastic or fiber glass. TYPES OF BOATS LEARNING  OBJECTIVE:  Identify  the different types of boats used in the U.S. Navy. There are a number of types of boats used in the Navy today. We briefly describe a few of the boats most commonly seen, although you will surely see many others  during  your  naval  career. LANDING CRAFT Landing craft (called boats) are carried by various amphibious ships and are referred to by designation. They are designed to transport personnel and/or cargo from ship to shore. Figure 5-2, view A is a line drawing of an LCP(L); view B is a line drawing of an LCM. Figure 5-2.–Landing craft; (A) 36-foot LCP(L), (B) 74-foot LCM. 5-2
