Sure, you know that you need to learn a few more knots, but they’re soooo 19th century, confusing and way too hard to learn. Isn’t there an app for this stuff? Sorry, but no. (Although there’s an app to learn to tie them called Grog’s Animated Knots: $4.99 in the iTunes store.) While electronics have taken over almost everything on board, you’re still going to have to deal with ropes. Which isn’t so bad. In fact, it opens up interesting opportunities.
