Crapaud is on a distinguished road
Thanks for the recommendations. I have a few knot handbooks, but am disappointed with their details - especially the whipping and splicing of double braid and other non-three strand ropes.

My question after looking at the two books you recommended on line. Is The Marlinspike Sailor needed with the Rigger's Apprentice or is Rigger's App. all encompassing?

Thanks again for the advice,

John
