Knots

I have now Jono,
well located, great site. As mentioned any idiot can tie up a boat but if its not a proper knot one cannot rely on it so they tie several more on it which takes for ever toundoe and they must have no peace of mind.

I have alot of exprience with Yachts and I reckon the best all rounder is the Round Turn and two half hitches. This one will save fingers once crew are taught to take a full round turn and hold slack onbitter end, it will hold a liner and allow time for one to single handed make a bend (tie a knot) on the Bollard/bits or whatever...

2nd place

Howdy Jono, whats 2nd place??????

I used to have take out 160 fingers on Sail Training Yachts, an dbring 160 fingers home....
Not Easy.

Round turn and two half hitches properly explained covers everything.

I can still tie Trip Bowline on the bend, Blind folded, behind my back for those who know what it is and does, Who teh feck will know what to do with it>>>>>

Bowline on the bend must be what happens when you tie it blindfolded behind your back
