Learning the ropes

Sailing a boat you learn the ropes
in more than just one way.
But first of all the skipper hopes
that all deckhands do stay.

They are instructed how they use
suspiciously strange tools,
and often you hear them abuse
the lazybones as fools.

Exactly how a rope is laid
and wound around a nail
must repeatedly be made
to hoist up the main sail.
