The Ditty Bag Book : A Guide for Sailors, Paperback / softback Book

The Ditty Bag Book : A Guide for Sailors Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Sailors have used ditty bags to carry sewing equipment, toiletries, and other small items for centuries, and now The Ditty Bag Book teaches modern-day sailors the art form of hand-making ditty bags to use on their own seaward travels.

Master sailor Frank Rosenow provides complete, step-by-step instructions in the making of a ditty bag from cutting material to size to decorative touches and emphasizes the proper maintenance of rigging and sails using the items stowed in the ditty bag. Included in this handy, portable guide is additional information about the essential tools any sailor should have aboard ship, such as a clasp knife, a hand-seeming palm, beeswax, and a serving mallet.

Rosenow also offers an array of advice on repairing sails, splicing, palm-and-needle whippings, chafing gear, and much more!

Complete with hand drawings by the author, The Ditty Bag Book is essential for any modern-day sailor.
