Very useful.

The bowline is a must learn knot. I had the hardest time learning it. Than I went to YouTube and shown an easy way to make one.

Sorry for the over size photo on steroids. lol Easier for us old people to see, when we don't have our glasses on.:)
I have no idea how that happened, and have no idea how to fix it.
Anyways I have never figured out how to tie the bowline knot. However in 1995 I found this article about this knot.
It is a 2 second knot to tie, it has never jammed on me, and comes apart easily.
For those interested, play with it and give us your input.

I had a boating friend whose motto was: "If you don't know knots, then tie lots" lol! And if you saw his stern anchor line, you knew he meant what he said lol!
