meaning: sail

帆船 ==  hansen == (noun) sailing ship, sailing boat, sailing vessel
帆走 == hansou == (noun) sailing




Left radical is a radical form of 'cloth' (布). Right radical is 'common/mediocre' (凡), here used as simplified version of 'wind' (風). Cloth that catches wind is a sail. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Mediocre cloth used for sail.'
