Proposal for a chain shackle attachment
305 x 188 mm
Scale: 1:12. Plan showing a section through an Orlop Deck beam end with a proposal for passing a chain and shackle round the beam for attaching the Hempen cable, instead of the common clench.
Signed by Richard Blake [Master Shipwright, Portsmouth Dockyard, 1835-1844].
A clench is where a bolt or shackle has its bolt hammered over so it cannot be removed, thus closing the shackle permanently.
Original size: 188 mm x 305 mm
