And that somuch is sould for unserviceable stuffe may not seem
strange whilst the shipps are surveyed only by a Clerke, a
Master or his deputy and the Boateswaine of the shipp, whereof
the Boateswaine and deputy are contractors for that whereof
they are disposers and the Clerk is neither sworne nor accom
ptable to the king, for as sometimes they sticke not to passe
away for unserviceable, that w[hi]ch is noted to be serviceable
upon their owne Books.

Like waste hath been made of sailes and saile canvas for
though upon survey we finde wanting at leaste 182 sailes
of all sorts in these few shipps that are serviceable w[hi]ch can
hardly be supplied (if all be made new ) w[i]th £2000 charge; yet
in the time of their decay there have bene boughte at least
2000 boultes of canvas w[hi]ch have cost his Majesty neare
£3000,and might have maintained all the sailes in good
state if they had bene well imployed as the sailemaker
doth confesse.

We might add the whole sale that was made of cordage
canvas and other remaines of the last Triumph above
Bridge for which one man paid £182.14s.11d.

And the havock of deale boardes and of Ironworke and of the
old Timber of all shipps whereof parte hath beene sould
to inferiour officers and others, and moste carryed away by the
workmen themselves. And lastly of old kettles, potts panns
shivers of brasse of good price and such like utensils sold away
likewise to the clerks or others.

Manye unnecessarye and unfitt charges are caste upon the
King; as firste the transportacon of old ships w[hi]ch are brought
from Chatham to Woolwich or Debtford onely to be torne
downe there and built new from the keele this hath cost the
kinge in the 4 shipps now in dock not soe little as 1000 markes.

Againe the greate Building, enlarging, taking to Kent,
and furnishing of houses to private uses, thenterteyning
of unservicieable men of all trades, boyes and children
and impotent persons, and above all these, sellinge of



Chatham; Woolwich; Debtford




Ironwork; Sails and Sail Canvases; Utensils; Cordage
Surveying ships to assess the misuse of materials, as sailes are wasted due to inadequate care. Auctioning off materials and objects from ships to strip them to the keels and building them up again.
