Reviews

"The book's clear, sequential photographs include all the basics, including bends, splices, and line-handling tips." - Ocean Navigator "Teaches the 20 most useful knots and splices with wonderful step-by-step photographs. Almost every knot is pictured on two facing pages, so the entire sequence is right before you." - The Ensign "Its illustrations on how the knots are tied are among the best I have seen." - Mariner's Log "More than knots, [this book] is about rope and its uses on boats." - Dockside "This is a book for beginners - and a fine one at that." - Cruising Club News
