A ship has at least one deck which is inventively latticed in a regular e.g., repeating geometric pattern of hatches. The hatches of each such inventive deck are shaped in standardized geometric forms and disposed in diagonally contiguous interrelationships, thereby enhancing the structural characteristics of the deck and of the ship, especially in terms of attenuation of warping, deflections and resultant stresses.
