Captain Al Posted March 7, 2016 Share #1 Posted March 7, 2016 Can anyone give me an idea of what the 'burton pendants' are used for? I've looked through two books on rigging and I see them hanging there, but they are always shown just hanging there loose with nothing further attached to them. Are they for the purpose of hoisting things off the deck? If so, would they be tied off when not in use? Hard to imagine these lines just swinging around on a rolling ship. mtaylor, GLakie and Barbossa 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
