Here's the question/answer you are looking for


Question of V (10.05.2015): What actually was the grapple used for? Could it be used for things other than collision? Could it serve as the butt of a weapon (the cap) of the gun that was not used to fire only?
GrappleA: The grapple was used for several things:
- It could replace the anchor on light boats,
- It served as an anchor on the bank to make maneuvers,
- It was used extensively during collisions as a gripper for boats and to bring them closer to each other.

Some books define grapple like a weapon, which seems rather surprising given that it is a heavy piece of steel.
