I suppose if you're going to know only one knot, the bowline would be the knot to know, but I think a knowledge of a half-dozen or so knots, for different purposes, is necessary. Even in my exceedingly limited boating adventures, so far, I've used the bowline, clove hitch, clove hitch plus double half hitch, and reef knots.
Just thought of a couple more I've used already: Stopper (figure-eight) knot and slipped half hitch.
