Basic Boating Knots

Forget the complicated twists, turns, fancy bends and splices. All you really need to enjoy your Grady Day and look like a pro is the ability to tie three or four basic knots that work every time and are nearly infallible. If you already know these basics, show this video to the family and won't regret it when you look and see your Grady being tied safely to the dock by your youngest!
