Custom: That is the way the mop flops
Used for the use of climbing down into life boats. The easy way to do it was to make several twists in a line and pass the end through the middle. When straightened out would have a nice long line of figure of eights. Saved heaps on trying to make them individually. I think that is about the only use the figure of eight had though I am sure that I will be corrected in this manner. Would I be correct that this is only one of a few knots know'n as the rest are either bends or hitchs. The same as there only ever being one rope on a ship and that should ring a bell for most of us.
