    Animated Knots by Grog

    I just found this web site. It is pretty good at showing how to tie knots. I also just added it to our links section. http://www.animatedknots.com/

    That's an awesome site!

    Question: They mention three types of whipping...the Sailmakers, Sailors and the West Country. Are any of those suitable for whipping a home made hammock?

    The West Country and Sailor's whippings will work. The Sailmaker's has to pass through the middle of the rope, so you'd have to put a hole in the hammock...not good.

    Here's the one I use.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hmmm tieing knots while taking care of business. That is an interesting mental pic.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    LOL I wasn't going to try to picture that - but thanks for the heads up!



    Hope he puts a knot in the RIGHT rope!
