Mentioned in various sources in rather cryptic fashion, plombs en table (rolls of lead) were identified thanks to the excavation. The Dauphine (1704) yielded two of them, both a pied in length, while a single, much larger one was found aboard the Aimable Grenot (1749). These strips of varying thicknesses were used by the ship's caulker for emergency repairs. (Nat 2447_1)
