Different Knots have a different use. Whether it be to bind a prisoner, fashion a moor line for a boat, to tow a car or to hang game for skinning. Using the correct knot distributes wieght and friction better than just... tieing two things together.

Awww I remember my knots well, before I joined the Army I left the Navy as an RM2 And have a 26 ft Columbia sailboat called Seaquest. So dont feel bad I cheat and play both sides of the fence I loved the Nav go back if I could I was RIFTED in the 95 Clinton cutbacks so I went grunt little did I know the Nav wouldn't take me back so I cheer for Annapolis during the Army Navy game while wearing Army ACU's

Hmm...wife reading this thread over my shoulder, and she asked me an interesting question:

 

You can only teach someone two knots, which two would you teach them, and why? (Let's assume they already know how to tie their shoes, LOL).

Boline and a Sheetbend the boline is a nonslipping knot the sheetsbend allows you to securely connect two pieces of rope even if they are of different diameter (width) but I do not think you could just know those three knots as a minimum I would say there are actually 6 critical knots to know boline, sheetbend, fishermans,square, sheep shank, and slip knots these are knots I use constantly. I have a top ten that I teach all my students but in a pinch you can do most of what you run into with these six

Slip knot (snares, lasso, noose, "adjustable to loop around anything that you don't know for sure how big around it is", etc.) and Square knot:: a strong 'general purpose' knot that doesn't slip loose like your shoe strings.

 

i have 100ft of 550 para cord in my BoB, each END is tied in a SLip knot, and the line is wrapped in a way i can just toss a loop over a hitch or sturdy fence post and run without worrying about the line getting knotted while unraveling quickly.

A truckers hitch is a compound knot

 

incorporates a bowline and a half hitch and a slip knot as well as others they work together to secure a

load on a vehicle, trailer, wagon or packing an animal

Aha! I used to drive a truck for a living, but I'd never seen these used before to secure a load (we had ratchets, straps and bungees for everything, when we tarped a load). I learned something new, thanks, Snake!

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
