The beam of a ship is its width at the widest point as measured at the ship's nominal waterline.
A bowloader is a crew shell (a type of boat used in rowing) in which the coxswain lies semi-supine in the bow, as opposed to the normal seated position at the stern.
Carbon fiber reinforced polymer, carbon fiber reinforced plastic or carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRP, CRP, CFRTP or often simply carbon fiber, carbon composite or even carbon), is an extremely strong and light fiber-reinforced plastic which contains carbon fibers.
Clinker built (also known as lapstrake) is a method of boat building where the edges of hull planks overlap each other, called a "land" or "landing." In craft of any size shorter planks can be joined end to end into a longer strake or hull plank.
A composite material (also called a composition material or shortened to composite, which is the common name) is a material made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components.
In fluid dynamics, drag (sometimes called air resistance, a type of friction, or fluid resistance, another type of friction or fluid friction) is a force acting opposite to the relative motion of any object moving with respect to a surrounding fluid.
Grease is a semisolid lubricant.
The gunwale is the top edge of the side of a boat.
A honeycomb is a mass of hexagonal prismatic wax cells built by honey bees in their nests to contain their larvae and stores of honey and pollen.
The hull is the watertight body of a ship or boat.
Hull speed or displacement speed is the speed at which the wavelength of the boat's bow wave (in displacement mode) is equal to the boat length.
The Fédération Internationale des Sociétés d'Aviron (FISA) is the International Rowing Federation which is the governing body for international rowing.
Leather is a durable and flexible material created by tanning animal rawhides, mostly cattle hide.
Edward "Ned" Hanlan (12 July 1855 – 4 January 1908) was a professional sculler, hotelier, and alderman from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
An outrigger is a projecting structure on a boat, with specific meaning depending on types of vessel.
Papier-mâché (literally "chewed paper") is a composite material consisting of paper pieces or pulp, sometimes reinforced with textiles, bound with an adhesive, such as glue, starch, or wallpaper paste.
Peter-Michael Kolbe (born 2 August 1953) is a retired German rower who specialized in the single sculls.
Rowing is the act of propelling a boat using the motion of oars in the water, displacing water, and propelling the boat forward.
Rowing, often referred to as crew in the United States, is a sport whose origins reach back to Ancient Egyptian times.
Sculling is the use of oars to propel a boat by moving the oars through the water on both sides of the craft, or moving a single oar over the stern.
A single scull is a rowing boat designed for a single person who propels the boat with two oars, one in each hand.
The Stämpfli Express (sometimes known as the Stämpfli 24) is a rowing boat for 24 rowers and coxswain made by former Swiss-turned-British manufacturer, Stämpfli.
Watercraft or marine vessel are water-borne vehicles including ships, boats, hovercraft and submarines.
Wave-making resistance is a form of drag that affects surface watercraft, such as boats and ships, and reflects the energy required to push the water out of the way of the hull.
Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants.
