Investigation of a metal target located 10 m forward of amidships revealed a concreted metal pitcher and a portion of the ship’s starboard bow structure. The structure consists of three cant frames (forcazes), and associated hull planking. Frame dimensions range from 20 cm to 22 cm in sided thickness, and 14 cm to 16 cm in molded height. On center spacing of frames is approximately 45 cm. Fastener concretions protruding through the timbers indicate that first futtocks, which are no longer present, were mated to the forward edge of the cant frames.
Fig. 6. This area at the starboard bow of the ship contained a copper pitcher that had fallen down between the frames.
In this area of the hull, the planks are 25 cm wide and 5 cm thick. Loose bits of wood were noted between the frames, and a severely degraded plank, probably a ceiling (internal planking) board, was observed lying across two frames. A copper cauldron located nearby suggests that the ship’s galley may have been located in this area of the hull.
