The Monkey's Fist A Mariner's Knot
The Monkey's Fist is used every day by ships, tugs and boats
to carry a messenger line to a distant wharf or dock. A larger line is bent
(sailing term for tie) on to the messenger line and hauled in.
With one line secure the captain can complete the maneuver in control. These durable Monkey's Fist key chains are hand crafted on the coast of Maine.
