|Capt Len||Take an 8 ft length of tared marline. double it taut between two stout points about hip high.Take an old hemp rope and cut into shorts (7 or 8") Unravel into yarns.Take one yarn in both hands,bring it from beneath the doubled marline folding it in half.Bring the two equal parts around towards you and down between the marlin lines.Pull tight Do this again till your hands bleed, snugging them tight once in while with block of wood or hammer. Seize both ends and present one end to the shroud and seize it there. Now tightly wrap the baggy around the shroud working up from the lower seizing Seize the end bit .TA DA. It's a bit more windage but worth it because it's so damm salty looking.Gaffers Rule. By Howdy Dothat .|

Hand bomb??? Never heard of that term. No such animal... and this according to my lexicons for Merchant marine & seamanship.
Warping is when you move a vessel along a pier or a wharf with the vessel's mooring lines.
Other openings in bulwarks are the Freeing ports and scuppers

|Capt Len||If the anchor rode goes thru it --Hawse pipe' If for mooring lines --Fairlead (chocks) As long as crew knows what you are yelling call it.If you want to hand bomb a vessel along a dock or along side another you are warping. Hope your help can follow directions as one leads, others take orders.|
