Tumblehome is the narrowing of a ship's hull with greater distance above the water-line. Expressed more technically, it is present when the beam at the uppermost deck is less than the maximum beam of the vessel. It can be seen well in warships of the period of HMS Victory but a small amount is normal in order to allow any small projections at deck level to clear wharves (Pursey p. 218).
