Photographer's Note

The stern is the rear or aft part of a ship or boat, technically defined as the area built up over the sternpost, extending upwards from the counter to the taffrail. The stern lies opposite of the bow, the foremost part of a ship. The stern side of a vessel is indicated with a white navigation light at night.
Types of stern are: cruiser sterned vessels! transom sterned vessels! counter sterned vessels!
straight sterns! flat sterns! twisted Sterns! constanzi sterns.
In the early part of the 19th century, the stern of larger ships became gradually more rounded, and with the advent of screw-powered vessels, the stern became the location of the equipment, the officers moving elsewhere, though British ships still contained an Admiral's sternwalk until well into the twentieth century...etc...wikipedia..
