This looks like an excellent site to have inside your cell phone. My Dad learned all the knots when he was in the Merchant Marine in WWII.

I like how you can pass your cursor over each numbered step so you can tie the knot while you're watching.

I was in the Sea Explorers. Sea Scouts were those clowns into uniforms and marching, we were into Seamanship. We sailed a lot, were supported by the local VFW and Yacht Clubs, and we had girls as members. Basic knot tying should be a grammar school requirement. You can do almost anything with a hank of rope, if you know how. Too many times have I seen a mattress tied onto a car roof with twine, really being held on by the arms out the windows. Time to change lanes or pull over.

The knots that I learned while striking Bos'n have served me well in life.

I forgot how to tie a monkey's fist & turks heads, though. 'Looking forward to learning those again.

Read a great little book on knots/ropes for sailing applications. It covered every knot I'd ever heard of, and then some. Wasn't a "survival knots" book, per se, except from the sailing perspective. Lots of knots were outside the strictly-sailing realm of things. Very informative. ~80pp or so, ca 1988, though I can't recall the title. Excellent book, with wonderfully clear illustrations on how to do all the knots, description of the application, pros/cons.
