Okay now that that is out of the way. I was curious if anyone had a favorite knot or two for pulling a line tight. One of the most common problems I see people have is how to tie something so that it's as tight as possible. The trucker's hitch is obviously ideal for this, but let's face it, it's not an easy knot.
Input welcome and appreciated.
