Re: Essential knots?

Yes.... The cleat hitch/knot tells quite a story. The last boat I bought had plastic thingys on the fender lines to hook over the life lines. They are going in the trash and I will go back to the tried, true and trusted clove hitch, which can be tied slippery for fast untying. The bowline is one of my favorite sturdy knots as it hold very well and is always easy to untie. And, agreed, the truckers hitch is handy as is the aircraft tiedown hitch..... Babble, babble babble.....
