The essential knot-tying guide. Including 25 knots and splices every sailor should master.
This is the perfect guide to learn the fundamental knots and splices of sailing: for those who like “simply messing about in boats”, to those who just love messing around with knots.
-Three-dimensional animation that can be played in real time, slow motion, and controlled with a slider bar for easy understanding.
- Clear and detailed video demos of each knot and splice from the editors at Sailing World add another dimension of learning to the skill of tying a “Sheet Bend” or creating a “3 Strand Eye Splice.”
- Each knot and splice is fully described and its purpose and use clearly and concisely presented.
Includes the following knots and splices:
Alpine Butterfly Knot
Anchor Bend on Shackle
Bowline on a Bight
Double Fisherman's Knot
Rolling Hitch on a Rope
Whipping a Knot
3 Strand Eye Splice
Core to Core Splice
Double Braid Eye Splice
Double Braid Taper Splice
Single Braid Eye Splice
Especially created for those who know that a sheet is not something to put on a bed and a line is not something to hang clothes on. Anchors Away.
