  • The average galley is a single-masted bireme or trireme.
  • While it is quick and nimble in fair weather, it is not very seaworthy and liable to founder in high seas or bad weather.
  • The galley is partially decked, usually with a walk that runs the length of the ship above and between the rowers’ benches.
  • The rowers are not covered by the deck or the walk.
