What are the main components of a Ship's hull?

The main components are the framing or skeleton to which the platting or skin is attached. The backbone of the skeleton is the keel to which the frames or ribs are connected. Deck beams are fitted between the side frames across or athwart the hull and are fastened to it by brackets. The frames are shaped to the hull lines and the deck beams are given a slight curve or beam round.
