This is the “inclinometer”.  Actually, I forget the real name for it.  It’s a gauge on the mess bulkhead that tells you how quickly you’ll throw up.  No… seriously, it measures the angle that the ship is rocking.  The Bramble has a round hull and “handles like a football” in the sea.  We rock back and forth on all but the calmest days.  Anything past about 15 degrees on this gauge and it’s hard to walk down the halls.  You have to get used to walking like Popeye with the wide stance.


**Thank you to one of our Facebook followers, Jeff Barteldt, for providing the correct name: Clinometer.
