Description from the company
‘Knots, Splices and Rope Work’ is the complete original 1917 classic treatise by A. Hyatt Verrill, the renowned American inventor, author, illustrator, archaeologist, explorer, zoologist and friend of former President Theodore Roosevelt. (If you know of anything else Hyatt was involved in please let us know 🙂
This App will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts, scouts, sailors, rockclimbers, bushwalkers, fishermen and anyone interested in exploring the uses and history of knots.
This App includes scrollable text of descriptions and 154 diagrams of classic knots, splices and rope work to help you learn and practice the art of knot making.
If you are planning to circumnavigate the world solo in a yacht, we strongly recommend you buy this App as part of your preparation. If not, you might still enjoy it.
It is not really an app and in fact it just an eBook but it is certainly a good solution to read about knots and ropes but the explanations are too short to really help at understanding any of the knots.
Anyway, for us fishermen, it is of no help but if you are fishing with a three masts sailboat.
