In the recent debate I prefer Able relative to ability than Able relative to body in the AB nomenclature. An AB must be able to perform many tasks including splicing and here are some I can still remember. From left to right, A sailor's splice used for a soft eye (and incorrectly used for many others). A rigger's splice used for a thimble eye. A sailmaker's eye to allow the roping twine to lay in the lay of the bolt rope and should really be tapered. An eye in plat on core or plat on plat used in modern running rigging. And finally an eye in 8 strand sqare senett now I believe called multi-plat and used in modern mooring ropes
