Trapeze - Wire gear enabling a crewmember to place all of his weight outboard of the hull, thus helping to keep the boat level.
Transom - The aft "wall" of the stern; often the part to which an outboard unit or the drive portion of a sterndrive is attached. A more or less flat surface across the stern of a vessel. Dinghies tend to have almost vertical transoms, whereas yachts' transoms may be raked forward or aft.

HIGH AND DRY. The position of a ship or boat on shore, when the water has entirely left her.
BEAM, TRANSOM A strong deck beam situated in the after end of the vessel connected at each end to the transom frame. The cant beams which support the deck plating in the overhang of the stern are attached to and radiate from it.
Transom: The surface that makes the stern of a boat
Transom flaps: Flaps in the transom that allow water to run off the boat

The stern cross-section of a square sterned boat.
Fore and aft balance of a boat.
Transom (Transsummer) - One of the principal transverse timbers of the stern, bolted to the sternpost and giving shape to the stern structure.
Traveler - An iron encircling a rope, bar, spar, or the like, and sliding thereon.
Boomkin (bumpkin) Short spar extending aft from the transom. Used to anchor the backstay or the sheets from the mizzen on a yawl or ketch.

Bosun's Chair A seat attached to a halyard to raise and lower someone to work on the mast.
This represents the end of the stem, or the last station from the transom. FORETRIANGLE The area forward of the forward mast in which sails can be set. A sail that fills that area. FRAMES Athartship members (ribs) of the hull framework.
Gimbal housing- supporting part of the sterndrive, bolted to the transom
Gimbal ring - part of the sterndrive that looks like a horse collar
and supports the sterndrive and allows it to swivel
Ground Tackle - gear used for anchoring.
Gunwale - the top edge of a boat's hull.
GWL - gunwale length ...
Bailers - Openings in the bottom or transom of a boat to drain water when sailing.
Balance - The degree to which all the forces on a boat are symmetrical so the vessel sails with just a slight weather helm.
bailers: openings in the bottom or transom of a boat to drain water when sailing. barber hauler: a line attached to the jib or jib sheet, used to adjust the angle of sheeting by pulling the sheet toward the centerline of the boat.
Transom - flat planking across the stern
Rudder - flat service at, or beneath, the stern used for steerage
Rudderpost - vertical shaft extending from the rudder to the helm
Helm - device for steerage
Wheel - circular steering device
Tiller - steering device that is a post or shaft of wood ...
Be particularly vigilant in corners, under decks that might stay moist, along the waterline and at the back of the boat (transom). If you can remove your boat from the water, place it on blocks or turn it over for wintering.
Scrub all boats at least once a year, more often if used in salt water.
Deep-Vee - A hard chine power boat having a 15 degree or more angle deadrise at the transom.
Dinghy A small boat, usually carried on hauled behind a bigger boat
Displacement-The weight of the water displaced by the vessel.
I/O (Inboard/outboard)- A propulsion system that uses an inboard motor, mounted at the transom, with a propeller assembly, similar to the bottom of an outboard, mounted on the outside of the transom, bolting to the motor with the transom sandwiched between.
iron spinnaker -- auxiliary engine ...
The transom is usually squared off and has less freeboard than the bow. In a current, the force of the water can pull the stern under. The boat is also vulnerable to swamping by wave action. The weight of a motor, fuel tank, or other gear in the stern increases the risk.

This great looking boat is a Judel/Vrolijk design built by Dehler Yachts. The vertical stem and transom give the boat a very strong look. Of course we see this in almost all the new boats but with 46

Let the sail out at least to the corner of the transom, and be very, very careful to keep the boat still. All your movements should be slow and easy, so as not to disturb the intimate relationship your sail is hopefully having with the wind. The goal is to keep the boat moving.
How your boat handles and its speed depends in part on the chine - the part of the boat below the waterline - and the shape of the stern or transom. If the chine is rounded, it is a soft chine; if it squared off, it is a hard chine.
Select a trailer that will structurally support your boat and evenly distribute the weight of the hull, engine (transom) and equipment. It should be long enough to support the length of the boat and have the proper weight capacity.
Irons - When the bow of a sailboat is headed into the wind and the boat has stalled and is unable to maneuver
In the offing - In the water visible from on board a ship, now used to mean something imminent.
