🚢 Do you know the different nautical knots? When at sea, knowing how to tie a boating knot is crucial 🚢
There are actually more than 3800 (!) knots listed in the Ashley book of knots.
Knots are everywhere in boating. They are used as a measurement of speed and as a way of securing nearly everything to a boat(Ropes) Yes, they are related, hence the same word. Knots, the kind tied in a line, were actually the first means of measuring sailing speed. They were tied at regular spaces on a line, and the number of knots that played out behind the boat per hour, measured the speed.
Knots on boats are the stuff of legends and great pride 🌊 For centuries, #sailors

Just one simple knot a time💜
