I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for ropes and knots. As a (previous) member of the International Guild of Knot Tyers, I was/am very passionate about rope. As simple as it is, it is often the most overlooked solution. People are wary of tying knots as it involves a skill and practice. It’s not an ‘out of the box’ solution. There have been several attempts to ‘simplify’ knot tying by creating knot hooks and tie-down devices to make it easier… but I find them just as complex.
Those who know – tie knots. Those who don’t, tie lots!
Seriously? People try so hard to avoid learning an easy skill.
