Thwart

Thwart

[thwawrt]
A thwart is a strut placed crosswise (left/right) in a ship or boat, to brace it crosswise.

In rowboats it can also serve as a seat for a rower.

Some inflatable boats have a thwart which can be folded and removed so the boat can be deflated and rolled up for transport or storage.
