    I love this website. As a new sailor, and one who knows nothing about knots, I believe I will come back again and again to this website to learn. Thanks!

    Hi. I work as a rigger in the entertainment industry. I cannot tell you how your site has helped so many of the new guys over the years. I first came to your site when you only had 3 or 4 choices at the top. I have shared your site with hundreds of people around the world when I was on tour. Thank you so much for this site and making it free, and easy to follow along.

    I just wanted to express my appreciation for your excellent knot page. I am a sailing psychiatrist living in Queensland, Australia, having trained in Bristol, UK. My crew have all been directed to your site for instruction.

    What a fantastic site you have, my son came home from cubs tonight full of knots so to speak. Coming from a farming back ground I've used rope and knots all my life however many are now long forgotten so jumped on google and found your site. Top marks! I was looking forward to teaching him some knots, and you have made it sooooo much easier.

    This has got to be one of the most useful sites I've found. I immediately bought the app for my iPhone. Great work and thanks!

    Just found this page and love it!! The animations are amazing and the reason for this e-mail. I am a Fire Service Instructor and teach ropes and knots.

    I am a long time student of knots and have been tying decorative and practical knots for 35 years. I also did lots of climbing in my younger days. Your site was sent to me by my old climbing partner and I just wanted to complement you on the best knots website I've seen. Are you into braiding and turk's heads? Anyway just wanted to complement you on a terrific use of technology to bring life to an old craft - congratulations and happy holidays.

    My first time to your site, but will not be my last. An outstanding site for beginners and old timers alike. I am sending your site address to my grandsons who are avid fishermen. As for me, I enjoyed the "boating" section since my wife and I sail.

    Your website is awesome! You clearly know your way around a rope and a computer.

    I have really enjoyed the educational value of your site. You undoubtedly have the best knot site on the web. Thanks !
