Skipper's Knot Guide

Knots, Bends, Hitches and Splices

Book Description

When you head out to sea, whether in a dinghy, a yacht, a motorboat or fishing crafts, you will need a few handy knots in your repertoire--to keep things secure on board and to get you out of trouble. Here is a convenient, splash of proof, accessible guide to 40 of the most useful knots, bends and splices you will ever need--and all with clear step-by-step sequence photos.

While the main focus of this practical instant reference book is the knots themselves, it also includes helpful introductory information on rope materials and maintenance. Each page includes a brief note explaining the most common uses for the knot shown, and how-to instructions accompanying the photos are easy to follow.

The spiral binding allows for fold-over convenience on board, and robust splash proof pages make this an ideal "aide memoire" for cockpit use in any weather.
