Cool Knot Site
I got the buntline link. The Grog Animated Knot site is very clear.
I did not get a link for the halyard knot however. I will look it up in my knot book.
I talked to a rigger today. Now I understand better what you meant by the "tucked" part. My boat specifies 3/8" for the halyard but I had 1/2". The tucked part did not fit in the sheave. The rigger says if the sheave accepted the untucked part of the 1/2" line, then it will accept the tucked part of the new 3/8" line. I'll install a proper 3/8" halyard this weekend and see what happens.
Thanks all for your comments and suggestions.
