    All such things pertain to water transportion vessels.

    A caicque is a light Turkish rowboat. Kayik (for spelling, use caicque) is a general term, covering numerous types of rowboats in Turkish naval history.

    A carrack or nao was a three- or four-masted sailing ship developed in the Mediterranean in the 15th century. It had a high rounded stern with an aftcastle and a forecastle and bowsprit at the stem.

    A caravel is a small, highly maneuverable, three-masted ship used by the Portuguese for long voyages of exploration beginning in the 15th century.

    A clipper was a very fast multiple-masted sailing ship of the 19th century. Generally narrow for their length, limiting in their bulk freight carrying capacities, and small by later 19th century standards, the clippers had a large relative sail area.

    A coracle is a primitive type of boat. It is a light boat, oval in shape, and formed of canvas stretched on a framework of split and interwoven rods, and well-coated with tar and pitch to render it water-tight.
