    Just a 'thanks again' for making this resource so available and so clear. It has saved me literally months of explanation and typing when someone asks, "How do I tie a...", and at my age, that's a BIG thing!

    I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how thoroughly IMPRESSED I am by your website. All this information, the way it's organized, the how-to step by step, WAY TO GO!!! Double thumbs up from here!

    I have to pass along my compliments as this is perhaps the best organized web site I have ever seen. I have an afinity for knots as a retired Chief Warrant Officer Boatswain from the Coast Guard. I think this is an extremely well organized and easy to use site for anyone. Keep up the great work.

    Your site will help me fulfill a lifelong goal - Learn how to tie useful knots. I plan to learn these together with my sons.

    I belong to a volunteer search and rescue group on Vancouver Island. We are volunteers in the tradition of the RNLI and the US Coast Guard Aux. As part of our training for new crew we use your web site as reference material. Definitely the "go to" web site to learn knots and rope work, and to refresh lessons of long ago.

    Thank you so much! You give fantastic directions, and BTW, I love your site. I'm going to forward it to everyone I know. Thanks again. Katie

    What a fantastic website! I am trying to teach my son how to tie a number of different knots, this helps me greatly.

  8. Shelley B. (Wednesday, October 4, 2006 2:35 pm)

    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!
