heave-up net


heaveThat [seal net] which runs parallel with the land is known as the "barrier;" that on the right side the "stop-net;" that on the left as the "heave-up net." This last-mentioned net is the special feature of the frame. The barrier and stop-net are always kept floating in a perpendicular position by means of the above-mentioned floats; but the heave-up net is not so supported . . . It is attached to a capstan by means of a thick rope or "road" which runs along the entire length of the head; it meanwhile rests on the bottom, ready to be lifted at a moment's notice.DNE-cit PRINTED ITEMW.
