The poop deck is located at the stern of a ship. This short deck takes it’s name from the Latin word puppis – which means after deck or rear. The poop deck was used primarily for navigation. Artillery was rarely carried on this deck. It was mainly used as a viewpoint and signaling platform. The poop deck also gave protection to the men at the wheel and provided a roof for the captain’s cabin. The ropes controlling the yards (spars) and sails of the main and mizzen masts were operated from the poop deck.
In later years, the area below the poop deck was also used for sleeping quarters for the crew. If the weather became bad, waves would break over the deck, the boat was said to be pooped. The flooding would render the ship more difficult to steer. This possibly led to the modern use of the expression to mean “tired”, as the ship seems to respond more slowly. If you have too many poop deck mixed drinks, you probably become tired too.
