    Nr2 has a weakness though, it tends to losen up if it gets under tension sideways!

    I really liked the explanation but the music feels so distracting and unnecessary. You're doing a great job though. Keep it up! 🙂

    Not sure what it means for line to be too long, but, the sheep shank can be used to protect a damaged section of line. See also the alpine butterfly.

    For a sliding loop you should use the midshipman's hitch, rather than the tautline. That second turn should be above the first.

    Tautline is better around a spar.

    I recently learnt how to tie the old fashioned hangman’s noose knot. I find that it comes in very handy in the recycling centre there I work.

    "Now turns out that clove hitch, like the bow line, has a one handed method of tying it." (Demonstrates using two hands)

    I learnt all of these knots when I was with the State Emergency Service... your way of tying the clove hitch more complicated than the way I know, and it doesn't matter which side you tie the clove hitch, you just need to mirror the method...
