[1, 2] slyngr lǫngu tjaldi af sér ‘throws the long awning off [lit. off himself]’: This tjald seems to be a cover running the length of the ship and used chiefly in harbour. Casting it off, as Jesch notes, is a signal for departure once the ship is in the water. She also notes the rarity of the motif, but compares Hhund I, 26/1-2 brá stýrir stafntioldum af ‘the captain smartly pulled the stem-covers off’ (Jesch 2001a, 173 and cf. p. 165; NK 134).
