The degree of hogging.

The degree of hogging.

The hogging of the keel can now be rectified as the de-caulking has finished and the blocks under the keel can be gradually removed when appropriate. Hogging, or “hog”, refers to the semi-permanent bend in the keel, especially in wooden-hulled ships, caused over time by the ship’s center’s being more buoyant than the bow or stern.
