TUCK

TUCK, a name given to that part of the ship where the ends of the bottom-planks are collected together immediately under the stern or counter.

When this part, instead of being incurvated, and forming a convex surface, assumes the shape of a vertical or oblique plane, it is said to be square, as represented in fig. 8. plate IX. A square tuck is accordingly terminated above by the wing-transom, and below and on each side by the fashion-pieces.
