Overview

Over the years, satellites and autopilots have become standard equipment for navigation, and artificial-fiber and wire ropes have nearly replaced natural-fiber ropes. But when it comes to traditional knotting, natural fiber is still the favored choice for its classic appearance and the beauty of its natural colors and textures.The Book of Sailing Knots guides you step-by-step as you learn to master over fifty sailing knots tied with rope. With fully illustrated instructions on how to create stopper knots, bends, loops, and hitches, among others, Peter Owen explains how to correctly tie each knot, secure rope ends, and select the right knot for the job at hand.
