CABIN to To CALK, or CAULK

CABIN

CABIN, (cabane, Fr.) a room, or the apartment in a ship where any of the officers usually reside.

There are many of these in a large ship; the principal of which is designed for the captain, or commander. In ships of the line, this chamber is furnished with an open gallery in the ship's stern, as also a little gallery on each quarter. The apartments where the inferior officers or common sailors sleep and mess, are usually called births; which see.

The bed-places built up for the sailors at the ship's side in merchantmen, are also called cabins.
