Spanish term or phrase: rejera
What do we call this in English? My brain can't stretch beyond "boat-holding thingummys" :-(

It's defined as "Cosa como calabrote, cable, boya o ancla con que se mantiene fijo un barco."

Arrejerar is the verb and that means "Hold the boat with two anchors by the bow and the stern".

Which led me to "codera":

Cabo grueso que se da por la proa o popa a otro buque, al objeto de atravesarlo o mantenerlo abierto de un muelle o en una posición determinada; se llama también amarrade través, y si se da por popa, reguera o rejera. También se puede dar una cadena, boya o ancla.

Which led me to 'reguera':

2 (Náutica) cable; mooring rope; anchor chain

(nautical) cable, mooring rope, anchor chain
