Rib

Steffy: A small transverse member, often flexible and composed of one or several pieces, that stiffened the outer skin of a hull. Although often a layman's term for frame, rib is more properly applied to small craft, such as canoes, small boats, certain heavy frames that run from gunwale to gunwale in clinker-built vessels, or vessels whose skin is made of material other than wood.
