    No reply needed. This is one of the most informative sites I have ever found. I work as a stagehand with a specialty in computerized lighting systems, and I will *definitely* give this site to newbies. I came up through circuses, and I wish I had this site then.

    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!

    I think you have a amazing site! I showed it to some of my instructors and they agree. It definitely makes it easier to practice tying the knots when your not in the classroom.

    I just discovered your animated knots website; it's marvelous! I can't wait to get home now to try doing an eye splice. You make it look easy! I really like the general design of your website as well. Very eye-friendly and easy to navigate. Well done! Thanks for sharing this. I'm a fellow sailor.

    I am SO impressed by the iPad app for $5. Since I take my iPad sailing and fishing with me, using Navionics and GPS to navigate, your knot tutorials are always handy and clear to understand. Thanks a million!

    I currently teach EMS and Firefighting at our local college. Your site has been utilized many times in and out of class. It has really made learning knots easy. Thanks....
