Were dead-eyes and hearts tarred? Or they went black due to fact that the tar of the standing rigging ropes came oi contact ?


Ps is there a name for all this (dead-eyes, bull-eyes, hearts etc)standing rigging "blocks without sheaves"?

So sheaves or not, in english are all blocks. (Thats not the case in greek). Thank you again for this excellent document.
