"As canvas is still used for a variety of purposes on board ships of the Merchant Navy, Junior Mates of small vessels and Quartermasters of large ones, as wejj as Able Seamen are often required to sew a good deal of canvas during the course of a voyage. But although they do not find the actual sewing so very difficult, they invariably experience some trouble with measurements and cutting out, a fact to which particular attention has been paid in this book. Canvas work on board modern vessels is so far removed from the making of sails that it would be a misnomer to use the term saiimakmg in this connection, consequentlyit has been avoided in the title of this volume."
