I don't what the name of them is, I've always heard them called Sea Apples. We hauled up that piece of rope from the bottom in 30 fathoms of water. something was attached to it, but the rope snapped. many other marine growths were attached to the rope. they are about 2" in diameter and attached by roods intertwined through the rope.
