Description: The complete and definitive bible of knots for seafarers.
Featuring all the knots, hitches, bends, splices, whipping and decorative knotwork that you would find on a boat, this comprehensive bible of knots will help those who go to sea master every knot they will need.
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 like the Apple Pie knot.
With a beautiful modern design, and highly illustrated with full colour photographs and instructive diagrams throughout, The Knot Bible remains accessible to all sailors of all levels of experience whilst still being the king of knot books.
