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 .
