  • I think whaleboat has a usage note (if I recall correctly) that might answer your question. (Might not, though.)

  • Wow. Why did they use this construction for whaleboats? Does Philbrick explain?

    May 1, 2008

  • "The whaleboats' clinker, or lapstrake, construction (with planks overlapping, resembling the clapboards of a house) made them much noisier than a smooth-bottomed boat..."
