I only use the one-handed boobijoo. I'm from the W coast.

Seaworthy lass, we have found that this knot slips with silken cord, you make want to lock stitch though we prefer soft shackles, fun way to lock the diamond knot

Re: Trying my luck at a better knot

I've been doing my best to avoid such knots. Unfortunately, they are always occurring.

Wouldn't that be the left-handed boobijoo?

Santa brought me a set of fids and I managed to get hold of some Dyneema yesterday, so some experimenting is about to occur .

The name alone made me burst out laughing .

For those interested, it is a lightweight adjustable system used for hanging hammocks:

Re: Trying my luck at a better knot

Neptune's beard, why are you guys talking about using other knots when there's the boobijoo?

I have found another great use for the boobijoo in an area that needs a lot of help: nautical fashion. After getting frustrated while trying to tie an Eldridge knot for my neck tie the other day, an idea came to me that was as mighty as the sun rising over the Atlantic. Move over, ascot tie, there's a new knot on deck for sailors everwhere, and it's the boobijoo!
