Quick Reference

To wind strips of tarred canvas round a rope after it had been wormed and before it was served or marled. Parcelling, like worming, was always done with the lay of the rope, and serving against the lay. As the old seamanship rule suggested:Worm and parcel with the lay,Turn and serve the other way.The object of worming, parcelling, and serving a rope was to make it resistant to water and chafe. Modern synthetic rope has made parcelling superfluous.
