Bell Rope.

On a sailboat, there is also the bolt rope.

Bolt ropes are sewn onto the edges of the sail to reinforce them, or to fix the sail into a groove in the boom, in the mast, or in the luff foil of a roller-furling jib.

Rope, or cordage, refers to material not in use. Once it is deployed, it acquires a nautical name depending on its function. Modern usage, however, does not necessarily follow the traditional.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
