Gammoning means to make this Loop around the Bowsprit to the Hole in the Cutwater and you make around 8 turns around.
Then you put about 1/2 dozen frapping turns around it to tighten.
First you start with a Running Eye… Which is basically a Siezed loop around the end of the Line.
I use French Whipping for this purpose.
I bought this Hemp Line and I noticed that it was a kinked and bendy looking. So what I did was to soak it and I’m now in the prot of stretching it.
