The ship had a massively built wooden hull designed to withstand being frozen into the ice. The propeller and rudder could be hoisted out of the way to prevent ice damage. Iron -shod bows were securely raked so that when ramming the ice they would ride up over the margin and crush the ice with deadweight. The Discovery rolled badly in the open sea where the flat shallow hull, built with no protuberances to work well in ice provided minimal stability in heavy seas. The hull was made from five different types of wood to better withstand the compression of the icepack. The keep was made from the trunk of a single eucalyptus tree. Ballast in the hull was created from old iron cannon balls. Ship was rigged for scientific studies. The metallic parts of the forward part of the ship were made from bronze (non-metallic) to include the crew bed rails and anchor links.
