    Or it can be placed around a deck eye bolt where a sheet block is attached to keep the block from flopping down on the wooden deck. In which case, it's called a "thump mat."

    They are, also, called "Thump pads" becuse they won't allow a deck block to go thump when coming about.

    I've known Tony (online) for a considerable time and as a member of several knotting sites his advice and tutorials have been indispensable.

    Thank you Vince. Good to see a familiar name here
    I am always looking for nautical related sites and recently ended up here.
    My onscreen persona asemery is my two initials combined with my last name. Emery is the correct surname. Tony
