In this book are the 20 most useful knots and splices anyone needs aboard, together with illustrated instructions on the essentials of smart line handling. Each knot and splice is presented on two facing pages with clear, simple instructions and photographs on how to tie and where to use it. The bowline, reef knot, sheet bend, clove hitch, and others are here, of course, but so are such inexplicably obscure gems as the carrick bend and the stevedore knot. Longtime sailors (and twin brothers) Paul and Arthur Snyder go beyond the basics to show how to coil halyards and sheets, make up coils for stowage, handle docklines, heave a line, fix winch overrides, tow dinghies, pick up a mooring, and much more. Nautical Knots Illustrated shows us the best ways to handle high-tech rope materials such as Kevlar and Spectra in addition to the accepted standards of Dacron and nylon. With an illustrated glossary and a quick-glance overview of common line-handling commands, this book will transform any beginner into a boater who knows the ropes. We published this book as Nautical Knots and Lines Illustrated in 1997 at 13.95, with 32 pages of color sandwiching the B&W how-to-tie instructions. This edition will be entirely B&W at a lower price.
