The Knot Bible : The Complete Guide to Knots and Their Uses
Featuring all the knots, hitches, bends, splices, whipping and decorative knotwork for use on a boat, this is a comprehensive bible of knots for sailing. Over 200 knots are scored for strength, reliability, ease of tying (and untying) and usefulness. Step by step photographs show how to tie each knot, and demonstrate how they can be used, such as in the rigging or for tying boats up.
Interesting knot know-how sections give extra information about the knot's history, plus helpful tips and techniques, including choosing the right rope for the right task and using the right knot. As well as all the old standards the book also features quirky new knots.
