To make: Worm the rope (p 115) and
wind strips of tarred canvas round with
the lay as in the figure. The width
of the strips should be in proportion to
the size of the rope. If too narrow the
edges will not overlap sufficiently; if
too broad the flexibility of the rope
considerablyunnecessarily lessened. A width
equal to half the circumference
of the rope is convenient. Stops
should be used at both ends.
Uses: As a protection to ropes, splices
or which otherwise might be damaged
by water or chafed. Parcelling is
usually served over. (p 119.) The word
"parcel", meaning a small part, refers to the
small strips of canvas used.
