Less than a minute?? Are you in some kinda contest?Shrimpzilla said:I've got to tie a knot in that cheap, twisted three-strand yellow nylon rope. It's going to be a permanent knot holding to an anchor. I've already tied a braid at one end with a thimble, but on the other end I'm going to have less than a minute to cut it to length and tie it, and I can't braid this stuff that fast. Plus it's got to be a knot that pulls up tight, can't leave an open loop.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Splicing the line to the anchor is permanent and fool proof, but a bowline is your best knot and can be tied in 5 seconds. It is also very easy to untie the knot.
