Am a retired Boatswain Mate; Now that may or may not make me an expert on anything, but I'am a student of most things and still learning.
Have seen it referenced on the Bowline that it reduced the strength of the line to about 54%. Checked with another retired BM and he said about the same thing.
The bad thing about "Experts", is that they stop learning after they think they know everything, and end up knowing very little.
