Title: Mooring Lines Jigsaw Puzzle
About: This puzzle features a sailor handling mooring lines. A Mooring refers to any permanent structure to which a vessel may be secured. Examples include quays, a wharfs, jetties, piers, anchor buoys, and mooring buoys. A ship is secured to a mooring to forestall free movement of the ship on the water. Mooring is often accomplished using thick ropes called mooring lines or hawsers. The lines are fixed to deck fittings on the vessel at one end, and fittings on the shore, such as bollards, rings, or cleats, on the other end. Mooring lines are usually made out of synthetic materials such as nylon. Nylon is easy to work with and lasts for years, but has a property of very great elasticity.
