When the beams reached a certain length, they need a pillar to stabilze and take over the deck weights.Can anyone tell me if every beam has a pillar or if places where the beam is partially supported by cabins or such may not need a pillar?
The cabin walls were usually not taking over forces, due to the fact, that they were usually removable. Especially for "Ready for action" these walls were dismantled to reduce the possibility of wood splinters when the ship was hit by a canon ball.......
