Suit is a device that allows a diver to walk on the bottom of a body of water (the sea, a lake, a river, a submerged quarry, a pool, etc.). By breathing through a tube connected to the surface, where other men provide the air necessary for its survival thanks to a pumping mechanism.
On a boat, porthole, allows the entry of fresh air and light into dark areas under or on deck. It also allows the occupants of the lower cabins to have a view of the exterior of the boat. When closed, the porthole protects against water, bad weather and sometimes light when equipped with a shutter.
The megaphone on ships was often made of brass, it was an instrument intended to direct and amplify the sound of the voice to give orders for maneuvers.
It has been replaced by portable radios.
A fog horn is a maritime signaling instrument on board vessels or on headlights, emitting sound signals in misty weather to signal an obstacle or hazard (reef, bench, jetty ..) or to signal their presence.
Fixed on the upper bridge, made of bronze, it was marked in the name of the ship with its date of commissioning, it is always well maintained and polished by the helmsmen.
The bell was used to signal the presence of the ship in case of fog and to inform the bridge of the maneuver of the anchors.
The bell of a ship was used in the past to indicate the time on board a ship and, consequently, to adjust the ship's watches.
The one and only "rope" on a boat is that of the bell.
Wreath Buoys: A lifebuoy, usually in the form of a ring or inflated pole, is used for safety at sea. Depending on its size, it can help to keep a person's weight completely afloat, and avoid drowning, or help keep it afloat and limit the fatigue of swimming.
The crown buoys were distributed on the outer bulkheads around the boat.
Air sleeves: large elbow vertical tube located on deck of ships for aeration.
Bronze plated : a mouth pat is a stopper closing the mouth of a piece of artillery, made of wood, metal or rubber, and which protects it from moisture, spray and sea bags.
Originally, the cannons of the line ships were protected because they were returned by the ports between each use. The invention of the movable turrets from which the cannons exceeded exposed the guns to the elements permanently. The mouth was sealed between each use by a stopper first of wood, then of metal or rubber. The modern mouthpieces are designed so that one can pull through in case of emergency.
The mouths of the large buildings were engraved with the coat of arms of the unit, and these objects became, in the course of time, objects of wartime naval tradition. They are prized by collectors, and even units that do not carry artillery (like submarines) nevertheless have their own symbolic mouth tag.
A Marine is a kind of figurative art, which depicts or draws its main source of inspiration from the sea.
