Is that the one where you do a crown knot on top of a wall knot? Fancy bit of ropework to put on sennits and the like?

I think so! It ends up looking like a monkey's fist. I may end up doing one of them!
 
My Seamans manual which i dont have anymore,listed and showed how to do all knots and hitches ,fancy or otherwise,The Mathew Walker knot was one of my favourites. Is this manual not issued anymore? If KNOT why KNOT?

I had the Manual of Seamanship Vols 1 & 2, and the Naval Ratings Handbook (this issued to me in Shotley in 62) until my brother decided to practise with scissors :evil:

I managed to source a softback reprint copy of the Handbook from the Imperial War Museum / HMS Belfast for about £13.

Give the Belfast a call, the IWM are not menned by exRN from my experience with them.

In my 1937 Vol one Seamanship manual

Manrope knot is used for securing the upper ends of the gangway manropes it is made by first forming a wall and then crowning it

Then----follow round the wall again and lastly follow round the crown.

It looks like a monkeys fist -- !!

Alright H,
Sorry shipwreck im GSSR, you know the branch of Seaman Specialists who only know weapon drills and SPO work. Knots?? What's a knot. Nelson will be turing in his grave with our title of 'Seaman Specialist'. I can fit a sling to an SA80 if that's any use... haha..

We're not 'seaman specialists' anymore (if we ever were) SW, we, like all other members of the rn/rnr are just plain old seamen. Also, as far as knots go, speak for yourself.......
