I like pictures of ship ropes: there is so much tone and pattern involved, as here.
Though, I have never seen the free end of ropes through blocks or deadeyes tied off in this way before.

Thanks, Mike. I donít know enough about rigging to comment. I do have a book, however, where the answer may be found. Itís called ĎThe Oxford Companion to Ships and the Seaí. Itís an excellent, encyclopaedia type work which, although arranged in alphabetical entries, is very readable. If youíre interested in ships, etc I would highly recommend it as a useful resource.
Alex.

I like tese type of detail photos, and ropes and rigging make great subjects, although, like Mike I have never seen roppes and rigging tied of in this way, could it be a Scottish thing? I know that down here we have some of our own ways of tying rigging that is special to Jersey
