These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Seaman's Friend - Containing a treatise on practical seamanship, with plates, - a dictinary of sea terms, customs and usages of the merchant - service: Look inside the book: Sway away, and point through the jack; put on the truck, and the skysail, royal and topgallant rigging in their order; slue the mast so as to bring the sheaves of the tyes fore-and-aft; cast off the end of the top-rope, the mast hanging by the stops; make it fast to an eye-bolt on the starboard side of the cap, and sway away. ...If there is but one hand aloft, take the end of the halyards aloft, abaft everything, and reeve it up through the block at the topgallant mast-head, and down through the sheave-hole or block at the topgallant yard-arm, abaft the sheet, and bring it into the top, forward of the rigging, and make it fast to the forward shroud. About Richard Henry Dana, the Author: In the October 1839 issue of a magazine, he took a local judge, one of his own instructors in law school, to task for letting off a ship's captain and mate with a slap on the wrist for murdering the ship's cook, beating him to death for not 'laying hold' of a piece of equipment. ...The point and city of Dana Point, California, located on the Pacific coast about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, are named for him, and a reproduction of the brig 'Pilgrim' was sailed around Cape Horn and permanently placed on display there for the Ocean Institute.
