Cartons, mixed cargo, example 4

The gap in the stow at (1) must be filled. The textile rolls (2) could possibly be damaged by rolling to and fro.
  Packing deficiencies in a stow of cartons and textile rolls

  Provisional securing by tie-down lashing

Subsequent repacking of textile rolls is difficult. Gaps remain at (3) and (4). However, if the rolls are lashed down tightly enough, they will remain in the cantline. If such securing is to be feasible, appropriate lashing points must be present and the lashing means must be attached to them in advance and lifted up as packing proceeds.
