PostHeaderIcon Sail Dressing...!!!

A bit of information from Colin Sharp for all those of you who are making a new suit of sails this winter!

   From some source or another he has discovered the ingredients and quantities used for preserving the sails – 

                        60 lbs of Ochre                            15s

                        8 gallons Cod Oil                    £1 16s

                        2 gallons of Linseed                       9s

   And apparently the time taken to preserve all the sails was 56 hrs and the payment…………£4 12s 6d.
