Knots that won’t come undone are good in some instances but not in others!
One of the most useful knots to know if you are into boating and four wheel driving is the bowline.
Now there are a number of variations on this knot and there’s no right or wrong way to tie it, but in the following video I show you how “I” tie it and some of it’s useful applications.
In short, one of the main advantages of the bowline is that you can make a loop…
And it can also be undone (with a bit of squeezing and twisting) no matter how tight it’s pulled.
So if you don’t know how to tie a bowline, grab yourself a bit of rope and give it a go.
It is pretty easy and you’ll be amazed at how many applications you can use it for… e.g. towing a car out of a bog, securing a boat to a pontoon, lassoing a wild brumby.
OK maybe not that last one but you get the idea.
