Roper’s Knot Pages – Hitches – Constrictor knot

Lots o’ Knots! This link was found at Humu Kon Tiki » Blog Archive » How to Build a Tiki Bar .
Lots of closeups of knot illustrations. Good stuff!

Update: A new user, illbixby has commented on this and posted (see comments) a scan he did of a drawing of a transom lashing which he used building the tiki bar, which I will also post here for reference.  Thanks illbixby!  Not sure if knotphile is a word or not but it should be! ;-)  Also including the picture of the transom knot marlin, again for reference.

Wish they would let me know something but untill they do I will keep making these little unhappy posts about them ignoring my site…
