    Masthead knot, because you can tie two together when you hit the beach. Comfortably hangs a sixpack of longnecks along your waist.

    My top five knots are:

    Marlin Spike Hitch - Tree Straps to Whoopie Slings
    Taut Line Hitch - Tarp Lines
    Bowline - One of the best all around knots
    Prussik - Tarp Ridgeline
    Slippery Half Hitch - Use to clean up and secure line ends

    Pardon!
    One forms a loop in the end of a rope the other joins two ropes.

    It is like how a marlin is the same as a trucker's. Just different.

    Rob,

    Tie them both and compare the knot.

    You could argue the the bowline is a sheetbend tied with a single piece of rope.

    Without a doubt, the constrictor since it appears not to be heading up the lists at all. Then trucker, prussic, slippery hitch, bow-line, blood-knot of various sizes, double fisherman bend, figure-8 and marlin-spike hitch. There's lots and lots of good knots not that hard to tie.

    I just wish I was able to follow Clifford Ashley's diagrams with any degree of success...
