Sawbill crew members practice knot tying

6/12/10 – Yesterday, while waiting out the rainy weather, some of the Sawbill crew members made it a point to practice their knot tying abilities. First, they started out with one of the most important knots for a crew member to know, the trucker’s hitch. This knot comes in handy when tying down a canoe to a vehicle because it is easy to untie without leaving a tangle of leftover knots.
Once mastering the trucker’s hitch they moved onto a more difficult knot, the bowline, which is just as handy. They also practiced lashing as well as the butterfly knot.
