What knot is this??

I have to confess some measure of embarrassment that one of my family secured the boat to the river bank with this...However, it did stay put for the night!

I can see what you mean, however doesnt a picture always give it away, I would be more embarrased Bruce in using that sort of Rat Rope...
That is for tying up Joeys!!!!

Only joking....

Rentals!

Yes they were pretty ratty.

This was on a recent trip on the Canal du Midi with hire boats, so the gear was... well... not mine!

I've been using sections of retired climbing rope from the local climbing gym. They cut them up into sectons too short for climbing, and sell them off cheaply.

The rope is nice to handle, has a bit of give and is really strong. It seems to be tolerating the marine conditions OK.

Well, they say if you can't tie the correct knot, tie a lot of them...
