Weatherdeck And Aloft
- Last Posts
The foc'sle is where the off-watch sailors take their ease during the two dog-watches (between 4pm and 6pm, and 6pm to 8pm), in fine weather. They may sing and dance, or just sit and chat, or do whatever they wish to, to relax. Aft of the foc'sle is the ship's bell, used to indicate the time. Terpsichore carries two six-pounder cannon here, as her bow-chasers, and two 18-pounder carronades, on their slides.

This is where the captain commands from. The commissioned officers have the freedom of the quarterdeck, although when the captain is on deck, they move over to the lee side. The officer of the watch will stand here. This is also where the ship's wheel and binnacle are. The steps to the quarterdeck are guarded by Marine sentries. When coming aboard a ship for the first time, or as a visitor, it is courtesy to salute the quarterdeck, or raise your hat to it. Remember: Officers board from the starboard side and men from the larboard. Terpsichore carries four six-pounder cannon here and four 18-pound carronades.
