Wasn't on my ASA 101 exam! Or maybe I missed that question. I've never heard the question asked.

Good question.

It's a Thingamajig. My boat has all sorts of Thingamajigs, and Whatsits, and Dodads.

If the anchor rode goes thru it --Hawse pipe' If for mooring lines --Fairlead (chocks) As long as crew knows what you are yelling call it.If you want to hand bomb a vessel along a dock or along side another you are warping. Hope your help can follow directions as one leads, others take orders.

Hand bomb??? Never heard of that term. No such animal... and this according to my lexicons for Merchant marine & seamanship.

Warping is when you move a vessel along a pier or a wharf with the vessel's mooring lines.

Other openings in bulwarks are the Freeing ports and scuppers

Hand bomb--May be a west coast term, but if you ask any working man around here he knows about lift that bale, tote that barge. and lexicon be dammed.

"I saw this was asked once before but I am not sure of the answer. In the transportation business, when something is stacked or loaded by hand, it is called "hand bomb". For example, "that 40' ocean container from Shanghai was hand bombed." It would mean that the cartons were not loaded onto a skid, and each individual carton would have to be offloaded by hand. Some people use the term "Hand Bomb", while others use "Hand Balm". Thinking about it though, I should think the best spelling would be "Hand Bond", as the cartons are being loaded securely, and thus "bonded" by hand. I am not sure of the origin of this term, but it is very frequently heard in the North American transporation business, as well as warehouses and distribution centres."

believe that it refers to warping by "hand" as opposed to warping a vessel mechanically as in using the locomotives of the Panama canal locks

Rope yarns arranged in the rigging to protect the sails from chafe.
