This classic reference (in print for almost 20 years) from one of America’s best-known knot authorities and professional riggers is as indispensable as ever. Whether you want to tie lines together, lash oars in place, attach a sail to a boom, or extend a towing line, the right knot is here, along with variations for specific conditions. The presentation is invitingly simple, with step-by-step illustrations and instructions that cover more than 65 knots, splices, belays, and coils, plus fancy work that transforms a plain knot into an adornment for handles and wheels. Author Brion Toss explains knotting jargon and encourages readers to develop a concise repertory of knots for their own day-to-day boating routines. In addition, there are practical tips on safe winching, proper tackle set-ups, and rope-end whipping.
