Hull Pirates k-plank

K-plunk: Part 3

Note this next excerpt from the city of Hull wiki page:
 "Pirates" is another addition to the recent "Wooden Boat... Theme" pattern-cluster.  I'm also reminded now of a "plank" of wood... and in particular one used by pirates.  Note the etymology:
  • plank (n.)  Old French planche "plank, slab, little wooden bridge" ...to walk the plank, supposedly a pirate punishment, is first attested 1789 
The french still use "planche" (meaning "floor").  Hmmm k-plunk k-plank
