    This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 Excerpt: ...The operation of tacking in a fore and after is a very different business from the same manoeuvre on board a square rigged vessel. In the latter the multiplicity of sails and gear and the utility of the different orders are rather puzzling, but in a fore and after, especially in a cutter, the knowledge of putting about, so far as handling the different ropes is concerned, may be acquired in a comparatively short time. See that there is plenty of room, by this I mean no other vessel, either under steam or sail, likely to interfere with you while in stays. Sing out " Beady about," and let one hand stand by the lee jib sheet. Ease down the helm, do not jam it hard down all at once, and again sing out "Lee oh " The hand forward must now ease up the jib sheet, which spills the wind out of the sail and assists her in coming round. If there is a strong breeze the mainsail will flap about very much and jerk the boom from one side to the other as if it would tear the stern to pieces, if there is no one aft but the helmsman let him make the tiller fast to leeward (most yachts have a piece of rope made fast to the bulwarks each side of the tiller to assist the steersman in holding it, all that is required is to slip the rope round the tiller head and belay to a pin, if there are no tiller ropes, beckets ought to be fitted on each side) get hold of one part of the main sheet and haul in the slack as the boom comes in, this steadies it until it fills again; the man forward, as soon as the jib blows over the forestay, must haul in the opposite jib sheet quickly, ere the wind gets full power on the sail, If she is at all slack in stays, keep the fore bowline fast until she is fairly round, when sing out "Let draw," and the foresail will blow.
