The Marlinspike Sailor - The classic reference for the sailor’s arts in natural or synthetic rope.
Smith, Hervey Garrett      
ISBN: 0070592187
International Marine/Ragged Mountain Press September 1, 1993  1993    4to softcover 131pp Very good. The Marlinspike Sailor to cult classic status when it was published in 1956. With the addition of a section on modern, synthetic rope in the 1970s, its popularity has continued undiminished to this day. It teaches a few basic knots--the bowline, sheet bend, and rolling hitch, among others--and splices in three-strand and braided rope. But its real business is decorative rope and canvaswork--the traditional arts of the sailor--and here it has no equal. For a rope mat, a rope ladder, a sea chest, a ditty bag, a canvas bucket, a mast boot, and the best-looking rope fenders or heaving line in the marina, this is the book of choice.
