Completely revised and updated, the second edition of this popular and handy reference book covers all the most useful and practical knots, bends, hitches, whippings, and splices in everyday use by mariners. It also covers the most modern high-tech rope materials and constructions, which require special knotting and splicing techniques.

Each knot, bend, and hitch is described, illustrated, and photographed in actual use. With one knot per page, the user never has to turn a page while tying. Soundings magazine said. "This small book lives up to its title. It covers all the average boater will ever need".

From the bowline and figure eight to the trucker's hitch, the fisherman's bend, here are the 27 knots, 5 whippings, and 12 splices every boater should know.

Sailor's Gazette calls it "the first book you should reach for right after you learn to throw a clockwise hitch on a clear".
