Reporting aboad with a wee present for those who might be interested in traditional knotting skills: A fresh Bellrope Tutorial which is a step-by-step on creating one, with coverage of a ringbolt (Spanish coxcomb) hitched strop-eye, "over-two" fender hitching and simple grafting as well.

I'm looking for pictures of your fancywork or that which you may have collected, as well as looking for anyone who might want to contribute a tutorial of their own for my tutorial library. I'm hoping to get a LOT of knowledge up on the web to keep the art alive into the 21st.

Especially interested in chest beckets and RN whistle lanyards!

Thanks for the compliments.... try doing one... you'll love the results!

Not really too long... I'd expect that it would take about 30 hours total for someone without experience and about 8-10 after that.... They're really a lot simpler than they look, which is the fact about most fancywork. Knowing what to do and when is the trick, the rest is all sewing.

Incidentally, Ros...batteries go in the tip, of course, under the waterproof door.... (had to go change trousers after reading your post!)
 


That cosh is far too good for a Crusher to use on some pod sod... must be a ceremonial cosh for the Josses' Parade Day?

Beautiful work of art and fine piece of craftsmanship! BZ Frayed!

Hmmmm... never thought of using it as a cosh.... now that's TWO new uses for a bellrope (although the first is a bit... uncomfortable... IMHO.)

Tell us a bit about yourself Vince, on behalf of Steve (AAC) as you have a beard could you put a couple of nude photos of yourself on the site (it would be even better for him if you had some sort of Stoker background)

And I thought I used to tie a pretty good "tiddley bow" on my cap tally!!!

Nice to see some of the traditional seafarin' crafts alive.

By the way, if any of you sea salts fancy a good old-fashioned and historically correct read, try Derek Lundy's - "The Way of a Ship" absolutely fantastic!!
