I beleive it is a way of looping a mooring line over a large bollard so it can be easily released. That's all I know.
BTW where exactly is it mentioned in the Thames Boating Cerificate Syllabus?

That sounds similar to a Highwayman's hitch - they often had to make a fast getaway, without the horse being able to escape! :lol: :lol:
