Once line is removed from the manufacturer's coil, it may be made up either by winding on a reel or by coiling  down,  faking  down,  or  flemishing. Coiling down a line means laying it up in circles, roughly one on top of the other. Always coil right-laid line right-handed, or clockwise. Figure 3-3 shows you how to coil a right-laid line. When a line is coiled, one end is ready to run off. This end went down last and now it is on top.) If you try to walk away with the bottom end, a foul-up results. If, for some reason, the bottom end must go out first, you must upset your entire coil to free it for running. Faking down a line (fig. 3-4) is laying it out in long, flat bights, one alongside the other, instead of in round coils. The main advantage of working with line that is faked is that it runs off more easily. Flemishing a line is starting with the bitter end and laying successive circles on the deck of line in the manner of a clock spring with the bitter end in the center 8 0 . 2 1 8 0 . 2 2 Figure 3-3.–Coiling down a line.
