ABOK preferred numbers ?
« on: November 24, 2014, 07:57:18 PM »
I see ABOK numbers used all the time, but wonder how one chooses amongst options.  For example, the midshipman's hitch could be 1027, 1729, 1799, 1855, 1993 and possibly others.  I usually see it as 1855.  How does one choose?  Is there a listing of preferred choices somewhere?

Although there will be some variance,
I think that a general consensus is to
use the number associated with the knot
in its category chapter (although there will
be ambiguity here, too --between ring and
spar/pile hitches).  Otherwise, so long as the
number denotes the right knot, well, we'll
get to it.
