You need the right boater's knot every time. Out of thousands of possible knots, only a handful are sufficiently versatile, trustworthy, and easily understood to be useful on a boat, and you'll find them all here. Illustrated instructions make tying and securing them simple; each knot's purpose is described as well as its differences from related knots. Whether you want to make a built-in handle at the end of a water bucket, lash oars or other deck gear in place, attach the foot of a sail to a boom, or even extend a towing line, check it on these pages first. Bonus: Practical tips on safe winching, proper tackle setups, and rope-end whipping. Book jacket.
