From certain perspectives it would look like the graceful lady was wearing her Anchor and Rode like a pendant.

A pendant is something which is worn below ones neck.
A pennant is something which is flown from the mast.

You made this up Nemo

Maine Sail: I worship the water you sail on but on these issues, I de man.

I guess the real question is what authority can we agree on?

I repeat, ignorance is bliss, and buddy I am not talking about you. You are my guru. Except on this point.

A pendant is jewelry.

Ah, nothing like a pendant thread to get the juices flowing.
I have settled on "Moor on Pendant" - with the "moron" double entendre quite subtle...

But I could be wrong...

Absolutely. Even correct when you're storing it in the rope locker. It only becomes a "line" once you assign it a task.

Does the rope know that?

I have also seen this done on cruising yachts where a piece of mast section was inserted through the hull and glassed back in and used for anchoring from.

It would be possible then for an anchor bridle to be run from the ends of the "Horns" and you would have a superior set-up like a cat has where chafe is all but eliminated plus you have the advantage of two lines instead of one.


Obviously you wont have a 20 ft section running through but a few feet would help in changing the angles and reducing the chance of chafe

These "horns" as you call them are called catheads. They have been around for hundreds of years. All the old sailing ships had them. Many large classic wooden vessels still do.

That's what I got out of it-a play on words suggesting a Mooron would be someone who is an idiot when it comes to mooring.
