geoff Posted July 31, 2014 Share #1 Posted July 31, 2014 I always thought(&read) that ratlines were tarred black? Now I read that they were left in natural hemp! The reason being that in tropical seas the tar would melt & stick to Mariners feet. I can see both being feasible, but which one is correct, maybe both !?
