Rope is one of man’s earliest tools. Various kinds of ropes and knotting techniques are used every day by all of us. Shoelaces, clotheslines, backyard swings, and bridges are just a few of the many uses of ropes.
A young man needs to learn how to select the proper rope for each different job that he wants the rope to do. A rope needs to be strong enough for the job, and the correct knot must be used to secure the rope. There are over 3,000 ways of tying a rope. Knots are needed to haul, hoist, tow, and support things. The word knot also stands for one nautical mile (6,077 feet) as ropes were also once used to measure distances.
