This is the storage space for the Deck Department. Many different sizes of line (rope) are used on ships for different purposes from flag halyards to mooring lines. The two large diagonal pipes are the hawse pipes which contain anchor chain that connect to the ships anchors. The pipe on the left houses the main mushroom anchor while the pipe on the right is for the spare “navy” anchor. The round scuttle in the deck leads down to the Paint Locker.
