Re: TRIVIA NIGHT

What is the proper nautical term for that piece of small stuff that you use to tie-off your halyards and keep them from banging against the mast (for those of us that still have external halyards)?

Joker down the street from me is leaving this month to "beat" his record on a 20 foot larger and much higher performance boat with satelite communication and on demand weather and routing. Some challenge!
