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.

Here's some more sources that are often considered quite reputable.

If "you're da man" you have some work to do educating folks such as the US Navy, US Coast Guard Brion Toss and all the way to Merriam Webster and lots of sources in-between....

Merriam Webster Pendant:
Clear-hawse pendant - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

USCG/Pendant Page 30 (one of just many references that have a "D" in pendant): http://www.uscg.mil/directives/cim/1..._16500_21A.pdf

US Navy Page 7: (this is just one of many examples of the US Navy referring to them as pendants) HMPE Spectra pendants (brand of special synthetic, non-stretch rope) may be added to the wire from the barge to the mooring buoys. The horizontal reach of each leg (combined length) will be approximately 1,000 feet (305 meters).
www.cpf.navy.mil/content/foia/ea/appendix_e.pdf

Taylor Made's Definitions page: They are one of the largest suppliers of docking and mooring gear:
Taylor Made Systems - Glossary

Cook Inlet Mooring Study (White Paper): www.cookinletriskassessment.com/.../MooringStudyfinaleditApril17....

Nova Braid Canada's largest supplier of marine cordage: Mooring Pendants | Novabraid

P.C Janssen a commercial manufacturer of mooring equipment:
Mooring and anchor pendant buoys

Jim-Buoy large manufacturer of mooring equipment:
Mooring and anchor pendant buoys

Rope Inc. another cordage manufacturer calling them pendants:
Rope Inc. | Megayacht Mooring Pendants | Tails

Brion Toss himself uses a "D" in pendant. He also defines pendant on page 187 of the Riggers Apprentice....:
SparTalk - View Single Post - Dueling experts





I still have no problem with pennant and pendant being used interchangeably..

I called them "horns" because the two boats I showed with them are Greg Young "Bull" designs.

They have been around for hundreds of years. All the old sailing ships had them. Many large classic wooden vessels still do.
A better image than the wiki one.

Ha ha ha ... I love ya MS. Your documentary skills are as good as always. I knew I'd pay for that comment. I note ol Cap Nemo was ready to have me flogged. Ah well. You'll notice I apologized in advance for raising the issue.

I was going to jokingly add that Brian Toss doesn't know jack but thought I might be keelhauled by the less astute.

Thanks for your generous compromise.

How 'bout dem Redsox? Think they'll ever win another pendant?

Aww c'mon after all that you're not going to let us in on your source that trumps the mooring industry, USCG, US Navy, Brion Toss, The Sailing Dictionary, Merriam Webster & more?...

I almost forgot a source:

Modern Marlinspike Seamanship Pg. 219 - Pendant (mooring) - A short rope or chain, usually with a thimble spliced in one end.

Nigel Calder also uses Pendants, with a "D", Cruising Handbook Pg. 64......

Very sly Captain Sail,

I hit one or two of those "sources" you cited. Interesting: the first link sent me to a porn site. I only look at free stuff, but thanks.

Two was a miltary link that required much time to download. Besides, the military is not known for spelling prowess last I checked. Imagine the grunts writing these manuals. I say again: Ignorance is bliss.

My trying to convince all the pendanteers to change their erroneous ways is a waste of my last few minutes or seconds.

But hold on: A third link sent me to this:

pendant
Pronounced "pennant". A short length of wire, chain, or line used for a specialized purpose. A mooring pendant secures the boat ot the mooring, a tack pendant raises the sail above waves.
This, from Maine Sail's ringer citations. Presumably he read them but failed to mention the part about pendant being pronounced "pennant".

My work here is done.

Oh yeah.

Well, I'm happy that there is a reasonable explanation for a bit of fun.
