9780071463218: Knots, Bends, and Hitches for Mariners (Us Power Squadrons Guide)
Reseña del editor:

Cobranded with one of the nation’s leading boating educators and richly illustrated with 200 fine drawings, this handy little how-to has something for every mariner. The essentials of the boater’s repertoire are here—the bowline, the sheet bend, the clove hitch, etc.—but so are such lesser-known gems as the hawser bend, the cow hitch, and many more.

Contraportada:

A richly illustrated, easy-to-use guide to seagoing knots

One of the most visible signs of good seamanship is the ability to tie the correct knot at the correct time, and fast. The essentials of the boater’s repertoire are all here—the Bowline, the Sheet Bend, the Clove Hitch, the Anchor Bend, the Cleat Hitch, etc.—but so are such lesser-known gems as the Hawser Bend, the Cow Hitch, and the Buntline Hitch. The Jar Sling is perfect for that Chardonnay you want to chill by dangling in the water, and you’ll also discover the fascinating handcraft of decorative ropework, developed by sailors over the centuries.

Suffused with a strong flavor of the traditions of the sea, perfectly balanced by up-to-date information on choosing and handling modern synthetic lines, this handy volume will keep you informed and entertained as you master the art of tying:

  • 18 knots tied in the end of a line
  • 6 bends for tying two lines together
  • 17 hitches for fastening a line to a cleat, post, ring, or other object
  • 8 splices
  • 9 decorative knots

U.S. Power Squadrons is the largest private boating educator in the United States and the “go to” organization for recreational boating knowledge and training. USPS offers programs in seamanship and navigation on inland, coastal, and offshore waters, plus a host of special topics ranging from marine engines and electronics to paddlesports and sailing. Members enjoy the camaraderie of fellow boaters and an opportunity to help their local boating communities. For a squadron near you, go to www.usps.org.
