In this booklet the most important sailor's knots are explained through word and pictures. 75 black and white images show how to tie the nautical knots step by step.

With color illustrations and step-by-step instructions, the author explains how to correctly tie and use more than fifty knots―including stopper knots, bends, loops, and hitches―and in which situations each one is most useful.
