Rope yarns wound around parts of a ship’s rigging to prevent chafe.
- And a gollywobbler is a large, light-wind sail that can require baggywrinkle to limit chafing.
- Chafing of a sail rubbing against a cable can be prevented on large ships by tying baggywrinkle around the cable.
- In our workshop we are able to make up everything from a halyard to a mooring warp, from a sheet to a baggywrinkle so let us make up all your new running rigging needs, no matter how large or small.
