The Knot Bible contents:

Hitches: There are at least 30 ways to attach a line to a fixed object. Some are strong while others are secure. What’s the difference? The answer is in the app!

Bends: If you think a sheet bend is all you need to join two lines then think again! Sailors invented the carrick bend, the rigger’s bend and others for very good reasons.

Loops: The bowline may still be the King of Knots, but its tenure is under threat. Find out which are the new loops for new ropes.

Top 10 Knots: The most useful knots to know for quick reference.

Knot Scores: All the knots in this app are awarded a five-part knot score, with their strength, security, ease of tying, ease of untying, and usefulness given a grade from 1–5.

“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea... "cruising" it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.

"I've always wanted to sail to the south seas, but I can't afford it." What these men can't afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security." And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone.

What does a man need - really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in - and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That's all - in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.

The years thunder by, The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.

Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life? ”
― Sterling Hayden, Wanderer
