     The double half hitch is commonly used to tie a line to a post or dock eye.  This knot will slide, resulting in a tight grip on the post.  The knot can slip apart under high stress loads so it should NOT be used for "mission-critical" things like tieing a rode to an anchor.

The benefits of the bowline are in its loop that will not slip, and in its ability to be untied after being exposed to a strain.
To tie a double half hitch:
  • After coming around the post, make an underhand loop (the loop goes under the standing part - attached or long end of the line.)
  • Bring the bitter end (free end) up over the standing part and through the eye which you created.
  • Next make a second underhand loop around the standing part, and run the bitter end through this eye.
  • Tighten it up.
  • 65% - 75% line breaking strength remaining.
You know you have it correct when the bitter end is in the inside of the loop. Follow the boating and fishing knot links to the right for more clear pictures, directions and some animations on how to tie several popular boating and fishing knots.

     The links to the left provide current marine and local weather reports, extended local weather reports, tide charts and the U. S. Coast Guard Navigation Center, featuring GPS information, DGPS sites (which are a must for anyone with a differential GPS), LORAN-C information, Local Notice to Mariners plus a boat load of miscellaneous navigational links and my Site Map.  Although most of the links to the left provide local information, my out of state visitors can also find nationwide marine and weather information.

      The remaining links to the right have my Boating, Fishing, Fish Species, Fish Fileting and Tackle Tips pages.  Following those are my Search Engine pages, one with short descriptions and another in a table form, plus my Research Page.  Last but not least, is my Doll House Gallery featuring the Farmhouse and The Garfield!  These keep me busy in the winter.

     This page is best viewed at a resolution of 800 x 600.

     As you visit my pages you will notice I love animation.  Feel free to copy any of the animations.

     Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are having trouble locating marine, boating, fishing, tackle information or have any questions!
