Re: Essential knots?

To answer this question, I just thought about what knots have I actually tied lately while sailing, and got the following:
1) cleat hitch
2) bowline
3) clove hitch
4) square knot
5) shoe laces on new rawhide in Sperrys
6) Once a year maybe an eye splice on a new dock line, but that's not really a knot.

And that's about it for me.
