Alteration of tafferel carved panel from Dutch tafereel panel for carving or painting from Middle Dutch tafeleel, tafereel from Old French tablel tableau
American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
By false alteration of either tafferel or aft + rail.
The two principal American taffrail logs are the Negus and Bliss (Messrs Norie and Wilson).
To enable the indications of the log register on the taffrail to be recorded in the chart room or any other part of the vessel as desired, a chart room electric register has been introduced.
The Bliss resembles the Rocket log in shape, and is secured to the taffrail by a rope or slung.
