"Its illustrations on how the knots are tied are among the best I have seen." Mariner's Log With nearly 300 superb photographs illustrating the "ins and outs" of the 20 most useful nautical knots and splices, this reissue of the critically acclaimed Nautical Knots Illustrated will transform any beginner into a boater who knows the ropes. Each knot or splice is presented on two facing pages, and an illustrated glossary and quick-glance overview of common linehandling commands are also included.
This completely revised edition of the Synders' classic Knots & Lines Illustrated teaches the 20 most useful knots & splices with step-by-step sequential photographs. Each knot receives two facing pages, so the reader never has to flip a page to figure out where to tuck the rope end next. Features a lay flat binding for easy use. The bowline, reef knot, sheetbend, clove hitch, & others are all here, of course, as well as such deliciously obscure gems as the carrick bend, the stevedore knot, & the rope-to-chain splice. Using vivid full-color photos imbued with the romance of boating, Nautical Knots & Linens Illustrated goes beyond knots to demonstrate how to coil halyards & sheets, make up gasket coils for stowage, handle docklines, heave a line, fix winch overrides, tow dinghies, & more. There is also a color gallery of knots in use on boats, making this book a pleasure to hold as well as to study.
Provides information on navigation the traditional way using a compass as well as using such electronic equipment as GPS, radar, and a chartplotter.
Traces the history of knot tying and offers illustrated instructions for nearly four thousand different knots
