    Not sure if ebooks have new editions or just get updates. Calling it 2.0

    Changes include adding the following knots:

    Water Knot, Carrick Bend, Highwayman's Hitch and Tumble Hitch.
    Also added drawings of the Constrictor Knot in the Bight and the Shear Lashing
    + drawings showing how to join Slings and Recovery Straps and a little info/drawing on Slipped Hitches.

    Have also polished the text a little.

    Original link on first post updated to new edition.

    Let me know what you think of the changes and if you have not yet posted, on the booklet. Thanks

    Great book thanks. I now sit with a 3m length of rope next to my chair. While swambo watches soaps, I keep sane with practicing.

    I have since learned that the knots that I have been using are called the bowline and taut line hitch.

    That is all I have needed.

    If you can't tie a know, tie a lot.
