Transom decoration, note also the two after ports located at the stern counter. No information for the colouring of the transom and quarter decoration survives and as such was likely to simply have been varnished wood, as shown below. However, having researched the heraldic colours and their usage at the time we have painted the decoration accordingly in order to pick out the detail.
