A pipe berth:
A root berth:
A root berth is usually a wooden bar with a canvas rolled around it. The
bar has a square at either end that can be dropped into a socket that
stops it from turning.
The outboard edge is simply a hunk of pipe slipped into a pouch sewn into
In operation the pipe drops into a set of slots.
The root berth is simply unrolled to the desired sag the sleeper wishes
and the pipe is dropped into a slot suitable for the sea state.
In port it functions much like any single bunk, but in slop the extra
canvas can be unrolled so the sleeper is in a sagging pouch , and the
pipe end placed into a high slot to preclude rolling out.
