The Carrack: Crusoe's Vessel

From Crusoe's description of the vessel he was travelling on, we can best assume that he was in a carrack when he was shipwrecked. Carracks were three or four masted Portuguese sailing ships.

The following diagram labels the different components of the boat that Crusoe utilized in the construction of his shelter. The roll of sheet lead was unused and stored in the hull of the boat.
