Marlingspike Hitch( N.fig 39.)
Other names: Midshipman Hitch. (Note
that both these names are used commonly
for other hitches: see.
To make: Attach the rope to a hook
as though making a sheet bend.
Uses: See p. 59.
Characteristics: The short end is jammed
against the hook by the long part. As
the hook is rigid there is probably no
advantage in the attachment over a
single Blackwall Hitch (p 59)
