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.
