Rigging and Knot References

I'd like to find these in paper. I had my hands on the Bosuns mate manual while I was in the navy, but its gone missing over the years.


Bosuns Mate Strikers Manual:
http://www.boatswainsmate.net/BM/BMSWE.pdf

Rigging and knots from the Army:
FM 55-17 Chapter 6 Block and Tackle, Wire Rope, and Marlinespike Seamanship

Hope someone finds these useful

Re: rigging and knot references

This link may be useful. There are many knots referenced here, not just the bowline.

Re: rigging and knot references

tbodine88, If you are an old navy man, and interested in an historical book, I can send you a 1927 Bluejackets manual that my dad carried in WW2 as a merchant seaman. I am selling my house soon , and have been looking for a good home for this old book. PM me a mailing address if you would like it.____Grant.

Or save them on your hard drive. A digital pdf is easier to search than a binder. It also takes up way less space.

Re: rigging and knot references

Ashley's is simply the most complete book of knots there is.
