Dune. A low sand hill.

Dungiyan. One-masted Arabian sailing vessel.

Dunnage. Any material, permanent or temporary, that is used to ensure good stowage, and protect cargo during carriage.

Dunstos Rudder Brake. Fitting for preventing sudden snatches on rudder chains during heavy weather. Thwartship wire, with ends secured on either side of ship, passes around a sheave on tiller. At normal speed of rudder, the sheave 'rolls' along wire;

with sudden stresses, wire temporarily grips sheave, so absorbing stress that would, otherwise, come on engine and steering chains.
