    Re: It's about Mechanics

    Mousing of a hook, a clove hitch and a half hitch are all types of knots and splices, used by sailors and other hearty types of outdoorsmen. 'Gin' has a multiplicity of meanings, but the nearest I could find to this subject (I presume you found all 4 words in the same source) is 'a noose used as a trap for small animals'.

    I don't believe these knots and lashings have synonyms, aside from maritime slang, but if you google 'knots and splices', and do some searching, you'll find descriptions such as
