This is a glass float that my wife bought years ago at a nautical novelty shop. I had covered it previously, but was never really happy with the covering. To tie I first cow hitched 8 strands to a steel ring. Then I placed the ring and lines over a drinking glass and created the half hitch covering. The eye was made with ring bolt hitching around a series of the lines that were pull up through. I straight whipped the remaining lines and then tied a 3 bight long standing turks head around the whip.
