Did you just say- OH NO! Not KNOTS!
Do you know which knot is appropriate for every situation when you are boating? Captain Chris will teach you this lost skill of knot tying in a hands-on seminar. Which knots are best for long term dockage or just tying up to the fuel dock on a sunny day. Clove hitch, two half hitches, cleat knot, sheepshank and bowline are some of the more common knots we値l cover. No experience is necessary to attend and it's also a good refresher for salty dogs who have gotten a bit rusty.

Schedule us for your next Club Meeting orRendezvousOR we can arrangea customseminar just for you. Send us an email and let us know what dates work for you.

Basic Bowline with a braided line.
Learning a bowline knot allows us to create a BIG loop to place over a piling when securing our boat in a marina. The cleat knot is simple: if it isn't pretty then it isn't right.
Keeping your lines neat when you stow them makes it easy to get ready for docking, once again. Leave a little pig tail to hold your line then you always have a hand for the boat when you prepare your dock lines while underway.
Keep the excess line from tripping anyone on the dock.
If it isn't pretty...it isn't right! The proper cleat knot DOESN'T look like a pretzel.
