Do you think I missused nautical terms? What I said. "Anybody put a crutch on their dodger
to be able to use it as a gallows?"
A crutch is usually a single
or sometimes pair of pieces of wood which supports a boom. Gallows refers to the frame itself, not the notches in it. I am asking if anyone has added a crutch to their dodger
to make the doger frame function as a gallows.
I don't see in your google
search for a boom gallows on a bimini
where a crutch is attached to the dodger frame. Yes, lot's of interesting options but none that apply to my question.
Since what I am talking about isn't a notch cut into the frame but rather a separate piece with a notch in it I think a crutch is the appropriate term.
