Knots and Line Handling: The Knots You Need to Know

Knots and Line Handling is offered as a seminar and as part of the Boat Handling course.

Recreational boaters use line and knots to: secure their boat to docks, piers, and other boats; handle rescue and repair situations; manage running rigging; anchor securely; and tow other vessels or people.  This seminar has been designed to help you to select lines for your boat and know which lines and knots to use in each situation.  You'll gain knowledge and hands-on experience selecting line and tying the 10 most useful knots, bends, and hitches; and you'll learn how to care for the lines on your boat and on the dock.
