Warping Or Kedging


Warping or kedging (was mentioned in Commodore Charles Morris's autobiography).

"...observing the benefit that the Constitution had derived from warping, Captain Byron did the same, bending all his hawsers to one another, and working two kedge anchors at the same time by paying the warp out through one hawse-hole as it was run in through the other opposite."
