    Hola, estamos a bordo de un barco y está describiendo el camarote del capitán. Estamos en el siglo XIX. ¿A qué se refiere con este término?

    She landed on a soft Tabriz carpet. Looking up, she noticed the wainscoting, the large fitted bed,
    the cabinets were all made from the same polished walnut. Cranberry-red wool
    curtains covered the portholes, keeping out the drafts. At the bay end, there
    was a banquette covered in the same red wool.

    En el extremo de carga, había un banco cubierto por la misma lana roja.

    Gracias.

    "At the bay end".



    "Al extremo del compartimiento".

    This word often gives problems in translation.

    Here "bay" gives reference to the "bay window/ventana salediza" of the "camarote del capitán" en the "popa de la nave".

    I see now that "bay window" is translated as "ventana bahía".

    In practical terms----the "bay end" is "la ventana del camarote". "A lo largo de la ventana había un banco/una banqueta...".
