Ship-BUILDING (continued)

As the various pieces, which have been mentioned above, are explained at large in their proper places, with references to their figures according to the plan of this work, it would have been superfluous to have entered into a more particular description of them here. It may, however, be necessary to observe, that as the theory ought always to precede the practice, this article would probably be much better understood by previously reading that of Naval ARCHITECTURE, which may be considered as a proper introduction to it.
