23. ζεύξαντες—probably this means that they inserted new cross-beams, called ζυγώματα or ζυγά, connecting one side of the ship with the other. (The ζυγώματα. however, may be ribs, σταμῖνες.) This has nothing to do with undergirding, which, as Mr. Forbes says, would be ζώσαντες.

24. ἐπισκευάσαντεςoverhauled to see if repairs were needed.
