This is a very good paperback. 1989 Marine Publishing Books. This copy is still crisp and clean inside and out. The pages are still crisp and clean with no markings seen. The binding is tight and straight, NO creasing along spine. The illustrated cover is also very good, clean and shiny with only a hint of shelf wear. Larger paperback or 7" x 9" with 146 pages including index.

Far from being just another knot book, Knowing the Ropes brings the skills of the traditional sailor to the complex world of modern sailboats and shows readers simple, less expensive ways for doing what a sailor does most often; handle the lines aboard. Readers learn how to tie all the knots you will ever need, deal with the ends of ropes, keep the boat and gear from getting adrift, go aloft and safety gear. Lavishly illustrated with engaging text shows readers all the ropes.
