The most used bit of ropework that many folks don't know is how to properly coil a line. Everyone should know how to coil and secure a line. It is really the knot I use most often, next would be the bowline or figure eight.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
