Re: Essential knots?

Agree agree. in order of importance :

1. Bowline
2. square knot (reef)
3. clove hitch
4. rolling hitch (my favorite.. the way it locks one way but moves the other, yet soo simple.
*** Of course the cleat, and although technically this is a knot, in my mind it is just wrapping.

**** If the cleat hitch is to be considered a knot (which i know it technically is) then it should be the #1 most important. because without it, you may not be able to properly secure your boat, and if you have no boat..... then it really doesn't matter how many other knots you know how to tie !! ;-)
