Description: This book is a reprint of the classical 1952 and 1960 Edition. The author is a sailor and the foremost marine illustrator of the 1950s and 1960s, whose drawings of traditional ropework lead The Marlinspike Sailor to become a classic. This manual teaches the basic knots: the bowline, sheet bend, and rolling hitch, among others, splices in three-strand and braided rope. Decorative rope and canvaswork - the traditional arts of the sailor - are also covered. For a rope mat, a rope ladder, a sea chest, a ditty bag, a canvas bucket, a mast boot, and the best-looking rope fenders or heaving line in the marina, this is the book of choice. A part on modern, synthetic ropes and their characteristics, braid splices and modern feeders has ben added in the 1970s, plus some notes on the Use of “taykles”.
