Sailor’s Dory Steering Ropes

Ref: 6117

SOLD

These are quite scarce. These are late 19th/early 20th century hand-knotted sailorwork ropes to put through each side of a tiller yoke to steer a small dory. I've attached a photo showing what a modern tiller yoke look like -- this would slip over the top of the rudder, and with the aid of the ropes, allow you to comfortably steer the dory while sitting forward in the boat. 

This matching pair measures over three feet in length and boasts fantastic knotwork ending in turk's heads, much like you see on becket handles. Condition is excellent. 

Dimensions: 37"
