This beautiful full-colour book covers knots, splices and whippings. It begins with the ten knots everyone should know. The other knots are grouped by use so that if, for example, you want to make a loop you have eight knots to choose from. Each stage of each knot is illustrated and its uses, string points and weak points are highlighted.

Includes:

  • Hitches (attaching a rope to an object)
  • Bends (tying two ropes together)
  • Loops
  • Stopper knots
  • Bindings and lashings
  • Fishing knots
  • Fancy knots

Judkins then shows how to seize two ropes together, taper a rope, coil and throw a line, cleat a rope and splice a rope.

“Knots are often difficult to follow in pictures, but these are exceptionally clear and easy to follow in their multi-colour detail. With very clear step-by-step diagrams, modern-day sailors will find much of interest.” Julian Stockwin
