CLEAT: A fitting to which lines are made fast.

Portion of the hull where the bottom and sides intersect (can be rounded or angled).

Fiberglass strands cut and simultaneoulsy mixed with resin by and applied to a boat mold by using a chopper gun.

Chine - 1. A relatively sharp angle in the hull, as compared to the rounded bottoms of most traditional boat hulls.

1. An angle in the hull. 2. A line formed where the sides of a boat meet the bottom. Soft chine is when the two sides join at a shallow angle, and hard chine is when they join at a steep angle.

Chinese gybe
Chinese gybe
A situation, usually resulting from a gybe, where the upper part of the sail is to one side of the mast, and the lower to the other. It occurs because the boom is allowed to lift up too high.

Hard Chine

An opening in a boat's deck fitted with a watertight cover.
A marine toilet. Also the upper corner of a triangular sail.

Chines are used in this case to make it easier to build the 445 out of flat sheets of aluminum. There are three chines per side from what I can see in the cryptic drawing. The D/L of this design is 146.
