A sheet bend knot is used in boating to tie two ropes together. It is easy to tie, strong, secure, and works well with ropes of differing sizes. Make a loop in the end of one rope. If one line is heavier than the other, make the loop in it. Pass the end of the other rope through and around the loop. The working end should exit the knot on the same side as the loop’s short ended side.
Boating knots are important to learn for your safety on the water. When you know how to tie the basic boating knots, you will be safe and secure.
