bestfriend I believe Sailormann is of the tape variety, as am I. If you can figure the formula out, you can even put tape on either side to see when you are sailing up to your potential.
I also believe that he misspoke when he said "slow" as he is a CS owner and could not have possibly been taking about his boat.

soul searcher Sailormann You can glance at the wheel and tell were the rudder is how much weather helm you have, good trimming aid. You dont have to be behind the wheel to see a insturment. and you can feel it with out looking at the wheel.

I got some old rotten duct tape on mine

Sailormann I'm still trying to figure out why you need a knot on the wheel to know if you are steering a straight course ... but then I have always been a little slow...

sailaway21 Leave the ends a bit long and buried under the knot itself. A couple of stitches with sail twine, or finer thread, where the two ends finish, tieing them into the other strands will secure it. Some put a thinned coat of varnish over the finished knot, which soaks in and aids in keeping it secure.

Tuck the tag ends of the strands back through the turkshead and leave them tucked underneath.

Equitman-

You could use a constrictor knot to hold the bag shut, and then put a turks head or other decorative knot over it. Opening it would be a bit tough, but it'd look pretty.

bestfriend You could whip the two ends together or back to the knot itself.

Finishing Off the Turks Head

I have tried a Turks Head before and been able to tie it, but how do you finish it off so the ends don't show, but the knot stays together. I would like to end up with a professional look!

Thanks,
Tom
