Continuing from brief beginnings on the facing page, folio 32 verso (D17416), here Turner produces a drawing of the bow and bowsprit of a ship. It illustrates how a detailed and elaborate web of braces, clew lines, and sheets enable the bowsprit, effectively a mast, to support the sails of the ship from a forty degree angle. This example is clearly crossed with a yard and sail close to its middle point. Turner also elaborates the surface of the deck, capturing an environment cluttered with complex paraphernalia.
Towards top left, a small, isolated drawing hones in on two pairs of deadeyes threaded with cordage and pulled taut, stretched to form a diagonal axis. At bottom right, a largely illegible sketch is loosely composed, left open ended on its rightmost side.
