Serving of Stays

Recommended Posts

I understand that the stays are usually wormed, parceled, and served from a point below the mouse up to the eye turned in to its end.  My question is this....is the eye itself served over or is it left uncovered?

Served.  With a mouse stopper.



PS  A main point in serving a line, is to reduce the effects of abrasion against any nearby surface.  So since the stays are looped over the masts they would be served all along the loop as well.

Here is a pic of the preventer stay, it represents how each of the stays would be served.  Yes, the eye is also served.

Sorry I missed that to begin with. Click on the pic to enlarge.  You can se the eye, the mouse clearly, and the eye served.

good luck
