Bowline is very important. Of course- mostly because it doesn't compromise the strength of the rope
as much as most other knots and is easy to untie. I find it a little odd that the tall ship guy doesn't have much use for this knot, what the do you use for your mooring
lines when you need to tie off to a tree or a fence or a mooring
or a million other things you might need to tie off to?
Sheet bend is very nice for bending two lines together.
Reef knot for reefing of course
Clove hitch for temporary lanyards
Rolling hitch is useful more often then you expect
Figure eight for your stoppers
Eye splice is the only splice I use frequently.
Trucker hitch for lashings.
I'm sure I'm missing some, but these come to mind.
