Knots, Bends and Hitches For Mariners 1st Edition 2006 - The United States Power Squadrons
This item is worth 70 Marine Miles points!
A richly illustrated, easy-to-use guide to seagoing knots. One of the most visible signs of good seamanship is the ability to tie the correct knot at the correct time and fast. The essentials of the boater's repertoire are all here; the bowline, the sheet bend, the clove hitch, the anchor bend, the cleat hitch, etc. - but so are such lesser-known gems as the hawser bend, the cow hitch and the buntline hitch. The jar sling is perfect for that Chardonnay you want to chill by dangling in the water and you'll also discover the fascinating handcraft of decorative ropework, developed by sailors over the centuries.
