þurruc
I. a small ship Þurruc cumba vel caupolus (the word occurs in a list of names for different kinds of ships), Wrt. Voc. i. 56, 30. II. the bottom part of a ship(?) Se æften-stemn puppis, þurruc cumba (cf. scipes botm cimba vel carina, 56, 32), bytme carina, scipes flór tabulata navium, Wrt. Voc. i. 63, 37-40. In this instance the word seems to mean rather part of a ship than the whole, and in this sense it is used later. It occurs in the Persones Tale: 'Smal dropes of water, that enteren thurgh a litel crevis in the thurrok, and in the botonr of a ship.' Tyrwhitt in explanation quotes the following: 'Ye shall understande that there ys a place in the bottome of a shyppe, wherin ys gathered all the fylthe that cometh into the shyppe, and it is called in some contre of thys londe a thorrocke ... Some calle yt the bulcke of the shyppe.' See also thurrok of a shyppe sentina, Prompt. Parv. 493.
