Ladders to Poop Deck

I suppose I should get caught up. I installed these Ladders going up to the Poop deck.

Ladders going up to Stern Deck

I used six 3mm x 3mm Walnut Strips for this, angling it at the Bulwark with my Sander.

In naval architecture, a poop deck is a deck that forms the roof of a cabin built in the rear, or “aft“, part of the superstructure of a ship.

The name originates from the French word for sternla 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.
