of the extraordinary weare and tare of the said shipp or shipps, and of

To the second article hee saith That if it happen that any such English
shipp or shipps employed in or upon the voiage aforesaid happen to loose
any Cables anchors sayles or other of such shipp or shipps Tackle
or furniture, or suffer any dammage whatsoever, though such dammage
bee occasioned by and in order to the preservation of the lading of such shipp or shipps
which otherwise might have perished and beene lett to the Owners
thereof, yet by the received custome at Lisbone no other reparation or
satisfaction is usually allowed to the Owners of such shipp or shipps
