Bowline - "The Boater's King of Knots"

If you're only going to learn one knot this season, here it is. The bowline is a very versatile knot. It is used to form a temporary loop in a line which may then be put over a piling or cleat. It can also be used to attach a line to an eye. This knot won’t slip or jam and can be untied easily.
