Double, Treble &c. Blackwall Hitch
Other names: (Double form) Stunner Hitch. (Bushell.)
p12.] [Caption: see 61.B] [Caption: E. B. xxi. 590. ii. fig.6.]
[Caption:Double.] [Caption: Treble]
To make: As the single form, but with
an extra twist to make the Double, and
two extra to make the treble hitch. (The
writer of the article "Seamanship", Encycl. Brit.
9th ed. xxi.590-1, calls the hitch above given
on the right, a Double Blackwall Hitch.)
Uses: For light unimportant work. To set
up top-gallant rigging. (See Blackwall Hitch,
p. [Deleted: 61] 59.)
Characteristics. (See p. [Originally 61 but inked over as 59].) A securer
form than the single hitch. In both forms
given above the top loop is usually rested
on the projecting ring &c, going through the
ring of the hook, but it is doubtful whether
there is any advantage in so doing. (See fig 3.) Pro-
bably it weakens the hitch in most cases.
