Cable Laid versus Cabled Rope

Could I please seek the opinion of the more experienced members in determining the diffence between the terms Cable laid and cabled used by Steel in his tables.

 

When refering to some ropes he states "cabled" while for others he states "Cable Laid".  Initially I assumed it was the same thing stated differently; but why, within the same table would he do so - there had to be a specific purpose ot reason for using the different terms?

 

Many thanks

Hi John, in his tables (first column - description) he uses these terms.  I don't have a copy with me so will respond later when I can scan ad show).  For some he uses the term Cabled (I think for preventer) and for other Cable laid (shroud?)  This may be the other way around so I will need to check to be specific.

 

cheers

I am sorry that I am not one of the more experienced members, but I would think that the two would be the same. I would say that the author may have been 'lazy' and abbreviated 'cable-laid' (which we all know refers to a "rope' made from three ropes twisted together). I would also say that this kind of 'rope' was used for anchors and not shrouds or stays.
 

Being new to this hobby, I am still confused about the difference between 'yard' and 'crossjack'. Isn't the latter also a yard?
