How many different knots can you tie? This site will help you to learn the knots every boater needs to know with simple to follow animations.

We recommend learning the following knots:

  • Cleat hitch for tying dock lines
  • Bowline – for tying an eye-splice
  • Round turn two half-hitches for practically everything else!
