Another excavated Chinese trader is described in details in this chapter to define the East China Sea shipbuilding tradition. The Shinan shipwreck, excavated Chinese merchant ship in the Korean waters, is now on display in the National Maritime Museum of Korean in Mokpo, available for the nautical archaeological study of Chinese merchant ships dated to the first quarter of the 14th century. The collected data through the investigation of the displayed hull demonstrates a comparative study with the Quanzhou ship. The reconstruction of the original ship lines gives a new interpretation on the state of the survived hull.

Keywords:   The Shinan ship, Korea, medieval Chinese trader, ship lines, comparative study, 14th century
