What part of the boat is tied to the thwart?

A thwart is a strut placed crosswise, i.e.,left to right, in a small boat of shallow draft. These small boats are commonly known as rowboats, canoes, dinghies, or dories. The thwart can be used as a seat, especially on a rowboat or canoe.While you probably wouldn't tie parts of a boat to the thwart, there are many boat accessories you could tie, and help prevent their loss. You could secure your waterproof or water-resistantditty bag, seat cushions, or dock fenders. You could tie your cooler or a bailing bucket to the thwart. If the thwart is structurally sound, you could use it to tie up to a dock cleat. You could lay your fishing rods on the thwart, or lay your oars on the thwart, if you don't have oarlocks.There are some items you probably would not tie to a thwart. An anchor and anchor line is probably too much weight for a thwart and could pull it out or even capsize the boat. A tow line also would probably exert too much pressure on a thwart and could pull it out.
