How to Tie the Heaving Line Knot
One problem with just throwing a rope, is that there is not enough weight on the end of the rope that you are throwing. If a rope is constantly being used as a heaving line, then to add weight to the rope a Monkeys Fist is tied in the end of the line. The problem with a Monkeys Fist is that it takes time to tie and untie. So an easier solution is to tie a Heaving Line Knot or a Heaving Line Noose Knot. I have included both videos on how to Tie the Heaving Line Knot and also How to Tie the Heaving Line Noose Knot.
What is a Heaving Line Knot Used For?
A Heaving Line Knot is used to add weight to the end of a rope. By having the additional weight on the end of a rope, it allows the rope to be thrown further and more accurately. The Heaving Line Knot can also be used to bulk out the end of a line, for additional grip.
What is the Heaving Line Noose Knot Used For?
The Heaving Line Noose Knot is used to add additional weight to the end of a rope. The advantage of the Heaving Line Noose Knot over a Normal Noose Knot, is that it is jam free. Should the knot become jammed on an object, pulling the rope hard will allow the knot to come undone and free the rope from the snagging object.
