Knot people love their knots!

When I was in the Coast Guard I remember people that would spend all of their free time tying knots; they loved it! The really good ones made it look effortless. Anybody ever tie a 'monkey fist knot' (used to throw lines between ships)? Those things are crazy, but I knew a guy that could make one in no time flat and hold a conversation at the same time; very cool. I should have paid more attention in 'seamanship' class, then I wouldn't need fig 9s and the like.
