BOLSTERSBOLSTERS, (chevet, Fr.) a sort of small cushions or bags, filled with tarred canvas, laid between the collars of the stays and the edge of some piece of wood on which they lie: they are used to preserve the stays from being chafed or galled by the motion of the masts, as the ship rolls or pitches at sea.
