A half hull model ship (also known as a "half hull" or "half ship") is a wooden ship featuring only one half of a boat's hull without rigging or other fixtures.
Prior to the twentieth century, half hull model ships were constructed by shipwrights as a means of planning a ship's design and ensuring that the ship would be symmetrical.  The half hulls were mounted on a board and were exact scale replicas of the actual ship's hull.
