Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
As a old sailor, years ago one could go to the Sail Locker on almost any USN ship and see this type of Fancy Work. There are still a few Boatswain's Mates that do Fancy Work, but they are getting harder and harder to find. Yes, the sail lockers were / are on ships that have no sails. They are almost the same as a bosun's locker, sorta the same but not quite.
I like knotty girls, myself. Used to be hitched to one.
