I suppose I should get caught up. I installed these Ladders going up to the Poop deck.
I used six 3mm x 3mm Walnut Strips for this, angling it at the Bulwark with my Sander.
The name originates from the French word for stern, la poupe, from Latin puppis. Thus the poop deck is technically a stern deck, which in sailing ships was usually elevated as the roof of the stern or “after” cabin, also known as the “poop cabin”. On sailing ships, the helmsman would steer the craft from the quarter deck, immediately in front of the poop deck. At the stern, the poop deck provides an elevated position ideal for observation.
