"Discussion of sea knots"
« on: February 11, 2016, 06:30:34 PM »
 Hi all.I invite all to the Russian forum on "Discussion of sea knots". I consider is one of the best Russian-speaking forums on knots.

Ever since I first laid eyes on Anna Kournikova I wanted to learn to speak Russian.

But knots are even more interesting than Russian tennis players...so now I will try to learn Russian.

This is an interesting site - the pictures largely speak for themselves which is good because Google Translate is probably more confusing than useful! I have never seen the "Pirate Hitch" (if that is what it's called - blame Google if it isn't) tied using 2 locking half hitches and wonder why (the translation is no help unfortunately).

At the bottom of page 1 is a bend which though tied differently looks like Ashley 1450 (Hawser Bend) but on close examination is slightly different - the picture shows 2 possible tucks for the working end but text within the picture cannot be translated. Seems like a neat and secure bend though.

Oh, dear, having learned Russian it to you won't prevent to study knots at the Russian forum, and further to communicate to tennis-players woman. :)

By coincidence, we've discussed a different hitch by the same name in this forum:

Thanks for the link Olegan67. On the Forum page it shows the knot to which Roo refers as a Tumble Hitch (I think - again the Google translation is not clear) and also the knot in the video which I rather like not least because it is difficult to release when under tension but very easy to undo once the load is removed. This may be an advantage sometimes.
