HAWSE-PIECES

HAWSE-PIECES, a name given to the foremost timbers of a ship, whose lower ends rest upon the knuckle-timber, or the foremost of the cant-timbers., They are generally parallel to the stem, having their upper ends sometimes terminated by the lower part of the beak-head; and otherwise, by the top of the bow, particularly in small ships and merchantmen.
