Peter Kasin Sing-outs (semi-chanteys) (40) RE: Sing-outs (semi-chanteys) 15 Jan 10

Rev Carr taught to me, in the years we worked together in SF, The Royal Artillery Man, Paddy Doyle's Boots, and Corn Broom Hickory Broom as "bunting" chanteys, when sailors up aloft, standing on yards (or "spars," where sails hung from)hauled sails to the top of the yard after furling them. It took a few good hauls (pulls) to get the heavy canvas on top of the yard, and these short bunting chanteys were used as they hauled together.
