Quick Reference

A tackle used in a square-rigged ship for hoisting in casks and provisions. It was rigged from a guy or pendant made fast to the mainmast head with a block seized to the mainstay over the hatchway. In some merchant ships the tackle was large enough to be used for loading and unloading cargo as well as provisions.
