Turk's Head Knot

It is common practice to mark a ship's wheel with a Turk's Head knot to indicate when the rudder is centered. And in our case, it also covers the seam in the leather nicely.

So yesterday I found a five bight, three lead Turk's Head in The Ashley Book of Knots (#1307), and worked it at the proper place. We are looking Shipshape now!
