Barrelman Hoist


Does anyone know how or why this hoist technique gained the name "Barrelman"? If you google the word barrelman you'll find that the term is associated with a number of different things (use caution doing an image search!) . . .

I enjoy learning the origins of terms. Thought someone here might have a definitive answer for this one.

Thanks for your time.
