Norwegian (Bokmal) term or phrase: varp
"Fortøyninger, varp eller spring, må ikke uten tillatelse plasseres i eller utsettes over farled, eller stenge adkomsten til kaier, arealer eller på annen måte hindre ferdselen."

Det brukes i en mal for utarbeidelse av ordensforskrifter for havner og farvann.

Jeg tror det er snakk om fortøyningsmetoder, men klarer ikke å finne ut mer.
