Large, small, traditional, or contemporary, all boats share one thing in common: rope. Learning how to deal with the gnarly stuff is the major prerequisite for graceful boat handling. In Knowing the Ropes, Roger Taylor lends his lifetime of seagoing experience to boaters of all skill levels, describing--with the help of Kathy Bray's drawings--every aspect of ropework aboard: how to choose it, use it, care for it, knot it, coil it, whip it, marry it, haul on it, and reef and lash with it. You learn how to control sails, tow a dinghy, handle the anchor, move heavy cargo, and dock under any conditions. You learn the ropes.
