COUNTER to CRAWL

COUNTER

COUNTER, (contre arcasse, Fr.) an arch or vault whose upper-part is terminated by the bottom of the stern, and the lower-part by the wing-transom and buttock, being expressed by the letters K G, in the elevation, plate I. as likewise by the same letters in fig. 1. plate X. and the figure referred to from the article QUARTER.

Plate 10

Plate X

There is also another counter above, parallel to this, but not vaulted; it extends from the upper-part of the lower, or vaulted, counter, to the moulding which terminates the windows of the cabin or ward-room below. This latter is usually called the upper or second counter.
