  1. I hope that you may be able to help me, please. A few years ago a friend bought a new traditional style sailing boat, rigged accordingly.

    One part of the rig required a piece of rope to be joined to another forming a ‘T’ and had to be non-slip. The handbook for the boat described how to tie the knot and gave its name…both of which I’ve forgotten. Although I’ve been around small boats for over 60 years, I’d never heard of this knot.

    I now have a use for this knot on my own boat…do you know its name?

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    • Hello James

      Many thanks for visiting this site. I do have a copy of the “Toss” Rigging Handbook, so I will have a look through that to see what is listed. If I can not personally find it, I will post your comments on the knotting forum and see what reply I get from that.

      Kind regards,
