Please insert absent words!
« on: March 07, 2013, 06:58:02 PM »
Hello!

Please help me if you have Ashley book. I have the next incomplete passage in my ABOK #321:

"At the lower end the line is stuck back under the service for four turns,..........g. Small-sized angler's hooks are......ermed whipping by anglers, but at sea it would be termed seizing".

The words are deleted and i don't fully understand these 2 sentences. Please insert absent words.

Thank you.
Vladimir

The full sentences read:

At the lower end the line is stuck back under the service for four turns, is then whipped, and all is drawn snug.  Small sized angler's hooks are whipped with silk. This practice is termed whipping by anglers, but at sea it would be termed seizing.

Hope this helps.

It had occurred to me to give you the following link: www.scribd.com/doc/72276811/Ashley-Book-of-Knots, but there were problems with the same page.   ::)
