It’s the Married Fall system. Two falls connected to a single hook. A"yard and stay" rig uses a married fall.

these are “Maryfalls cranes”

now you need to learn the correct term for each guy, lift, stay and hoist and the names for each block!

Clock’s ticking…GO!

Oh I am sorry but the clock has run out and you don’t get your AB ticket today

here are the answers to today’s questions

you do win a consolation prize though which today is a bucket of used Pampers or a very large and rusty old ship’s gangway…Congratulations!

They fly the porto potties off the Red Oak Victory every Thursday. Go to Richmond Ca. Volunteer, chip some rust and they may learn you how run the system.

Didn’t they take that stuff off the exams?

Yup. All pedestal cranes now.

I think they have a section on it in American Merchant Seaman’s Manual, from Cornell Maritime Press. Or try Marine Cargo Operations by the same publisher.

I know a ship that was right out the those books that up until the mid 90’s was still sailing…

any ex crew of the KATHLEEN PEARCY/PEMBINA/SPIRIT OF GRACE aboard? if so, you have a sweaty and greasy fellow shipmate here…

learn how to run the system?

I was rigging and running yard and stay before I was five! or is that before you were five or before these young punk DPO captains were five? Certainly before many of these new young’ns was even born’d!

The diagram that was used on exams for centuries with about 642 different labelled parts of a married falls rig was from “Knight’s Modern Seamanship.”

Sure, but these rigs were relatively easy to figure out, they look complicated but all the parts are out in the open where you can see them.
