Knots

The art of knot tying is known as "Marlinespike Seamanship." Good sailors take pride in their ability to chose and tie knots. For practice, a section of rope six feet long with a diameter of 1/2" is a good size. Tie each knot several times to make a mental picture of the sequence. The animated diagrams will help you form that mental picture. With practice you'll be able to tie a knot without thinking about it. The end of the line that you work with in tying knots is called the "Bitter End." The main length of line is the "Standing Part."
