Reviews of The Marlinspike Sailor

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Excellent book for anyone looking for best uses for rope. Text contains quality humor, and illustrations are delightfully detailed. Not the most complete book on knots, but all the essentials are covered for most all sailors, and what's here is top quality. Highly recommended. More
