timboat Posted November 12, 2014 Share #1 Posted November 12, 2014 I've notice it seems on some small ships, such as 6th rate ships, they forgo the belaying pins and jeer bits pin racks for varies ropes and instead opt for a similar set up with cleats seized to the shrouds. Would I be correct in saying that the seized cleats on shrouds function just as the belaying pins? If so, what ropes would be exclusively secured to the jeer bits? The halyards? The clews? The lifts? If this is the case, when the ropes are secured to the cleats seized to the shrouds, are they secured by simply coiling the ropes and using the end of the rope to secure the coil to the shroud? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
