I should video tape a Flying bowline sometime, that can be the best knot you will ever know. It takes less than a few seconds to make and throw which might come in handy if you have to snag a case of rum or something.

Where's the hangman's knot?

I got kicked out of boy scouts.

Rabbit comes out the hole, around the tree...

Shoot I'll just eat the brownies.

That's a great website. I will be forever indebted to Roger McAleer who taught me how to tie a bowline when I was a kid. The bowline is the King of All Knots. Unless you're a sailor, you can probably get through life just fine knowing nothing more than the bowline, the square knot, and the hitch.

If you like knots figure out how to make a Turk's head. A 3 or 4 strand is entertaining. A 7 plus is maddening. While in high school I used to make 7 and 9 strand 3 pass Turk's heads around a pencil. No wonder I nearly failed and it took me 5 1/2 years to get through college.

Yip we made those, I can't remember how but there is a secret to do it. Marlin Spiking was the family activity when we were sailing, it kept us rowdy kids from driving the parents nuts. The down side of it was there wasn't a loose end on the boat everything had some crazy knot. My brother tied my duffle bag ties so well that only a knife could undo the mess.

Useful information.

NOAA's Online Chart Viewer
< http://www.nauticalcharts.gov/viewer/ >
The nautical chart is a fundamental tool of marine navigation. It shows water depths, obstructions, aids to navigation, channels, shoreline, and other information mariners need to navigate safely. NOAA’s 1,000-plus U.S. coastal and Great Lakes nautical charts are viewable online. Each chart is up-to-date with the most recent Notices to Mariners. Use the online charts as a ready reference or planning tool.
NOTE: Use the official, full scale NOAA nautical chart for real navigation whenever possible. Screen captures of the online viewable charts do NOT fulfill chart carriage requirements for regulated commercial vessels under Titles 33 and 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Charts are available for the following regions
Atlantic Coast
Gulf Coast
Pacific Coast
Alaska
Great Lakes

NOAA Nautical Chart On-Line Viewer - Gulf Coast - (including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands)
< http://www.nauticalcharts.gov/viewer/GulfCoastTable.htm >

NOAA ENC Direct to GIS Web Portal
< http://www.chartmaker.ncd.noaa.gov/csdl/ctp/encdirect_new.htm >
< http://ocs-spatial.ncd.noaa.gov/encdirect/viewer.htm >
The NOAA ENC Direct to GIS web portal provides comprehensive access to display, query, and download all available large-scale NOAA ENC data in a variety of GIS/CAD formats for non-navigational purposes using Internet mapping service technology. Nautical chart features contained within a NOAA ENC provide a detailed representation of the U.S. coastal and marine environment. These data include coastal topography, bathymetry, landmarks, geographic place names, and marine boundaries.

While I'm at it, here's a USN weather site.
