Rope that is used for holding ships in port

A rope is made out of several threads. The material can be organic, like flax, or it can be small threads of steel (in case of a steel rope, wire or cable). A rope can be used to lift, or pull things, like pulling a ship into a harbour with another ship, or fixing the ship so it does not move away.
