The Book of Sailing Knots: How to Tie and Correctly Use Over 50 Essential Knots (Paperback)
In recent years, sailing has undergone some revolutionary changes: Satellites and autopilots are now used for navigation. Artificial-fiber and wire ropes have nearly replaced natural-fiber ropes. But when it comes to decorative knotting, natural fiber is still the favored choice. This book is tops when it comes to learning how to master tying the most common sailing knots. With fully illustrated and step-by-step instructions, the author explains how to correctly tie and use more than fifty knots--including stopper knots, bends, loops, and hitches--and in which situations each one is most useful.
