Man I coulda used that site a few years ago... took up boating (otherwise known as buying a hole in the water to throw money into) and spent ages with 'Chapmans Piloting' learning to do bowlines and fisherman's bends in the dark.

we use a lot of knots in the fire service. (in fact, I was tying ropes just yesterday hoisting tools to a roof)

I love that site...it really does jog the memory.
