So if a bowline is the only knot you'll need...OK, let's make this a bar bet. Someone please show me how to tie my shoes with a bowline. And tie 'em snug.
Come on, there's GOT to be a way....
Jim, I don't know about a slipped reef knot, but I always use slipped square knots in sail ties. That way I can walk down the boom and yank-yank-yank the ties are off and the sail can go up. Handy for a lot of things. (But they don't hold well enough or tie snug enough for my shoelaces.)
