Now here's something we're going to have to learn about. Amy on nb Lucky Duck had a recent post about rope splicing. The link she gave to the instructions on how to make the eye splice also had step by step instructions on a whole lot of knots. Very interesting!
The website is called Animated Knots and I see they have a smart phone app as well. Might be worth it as I'm sure it will take a while before we're any good at them. Would love to hear what experienced narrowboaters use. Comments welcome.
