TECHNIQUE Are you sure you know how to execute the right knot depending on the situation?

If you have been going to sea for years, we are sure that on board and at the dock you use the classic knots: gassa d’amante, piano, parlato, savoia, bocca di lupo. Good, but it can be done better. Nodes should be varied depending on the situation and the type of object to which we are going to tie the top. What is the right knot when it comes to towing another boat? What about attaching the anchor to the top? To join two tops, even of different thicknesses? Not to mention when you realize that the line you need to use is breaking, and you need to remove the worn part, without cutting it off.

A MANUAL COMES TO YOUR AID
To every situation, its knot. For that we have collected more than forty of them in a handbook, dividing them by type of use (arresting, weighting, decorative, winding, splicing, eye or gasse, sliding or looping, shortening, tying, fishing), pointing out the merits and demerits of each. Each node is shown in all its stages of execution. Here are two examples:node

Just follow the manual, and magically you will increase your maritime culture and know how to cope with any situation on board. The “New Illustrated Knots Handbook For Boating” is waiting for you in our bookstore!
