A proper heaving line has a "monkey's fist" (a waited rope globe) spliced to its end. The line is coiled and divided into two sections. The section with the monkey's fist is heaved as you would throw a discuss and the second section feeds from your other hand, "Heaved" in this manner the line (there are no ropes on ships) will carry a great distance. You can always spot a green deckhand when he picks up the monkey's fist with a line attached and tries to throw it like a baseball . . . to dismal results.



Selected for the American Society of Marine Artists sponsored 18th Annual Exhibition in Coos Bay, Oregon in 2011
