Re: Essential knots?

These threads often end up with people adding one knot to the next until some poor sap thinks s/he has to learn a hundred knots. I suggest anyone that wants to make a contribution list all the knots thought essential.


1. Bowline
2. Clove hitch
3. Square knot/reef knot
4. Rolling hitch
5. Half hitch

I know a few others (like an anchor hitch), but I'm okay with those five and looking up anything else for special applications.

sail fast and eat well, dave
