Dutch term or phrase: mik
In a set of instructions relating to the operating of a bunkering boom on a ship, the following:

"Wanneer de bunkergiek niet in de neutrale stand staat en niet in de mik ligt, mag er niet gemanoeuvreerd worden;"

I gather this is a specialized maritime term.

boom crutch
Explanation:
Zoals Freek aangaf, de mik is (op zeilboten) een steun waar de giek op rust als er niet wordt gezeild, zodat de giek niet heen en weer blijft klapperen.

Boom crutch, of soms boom rest.
