    then there is the other side of the coin...look at how far this seaman is able to toss his heaving line!




    Goddamned seamen on most of the vessels I am on can't hit the dock with a heaving line after we're already alongside!

    It's the same in the Northeast. There must be a pandemic of granny knot AB's floating around. I love the old, " The rabbit comes out of the hole, around the tree and back in the hole again " bowline instructions.
