A boarding pike is an 8-foot-long
pole topped with a foot-long tapered metal tip. Boarding pikes look much like
longspears, but the metal pike is designed to flow into the wooden haft, leaving
no grooves, collars, or spikes that could trap salt water and cause rust. Boarding
pikes are mainly used defensively, to repel boarding actions. The pikes are
kept in brackets around the mast, so sailors can quickly grab pikes and brace
them against the gunwale to repel boarders.
