The only time that it's GOOD to break a back! Top tip!

Many, if not most, knots become almost impossible to undo when needed, due to growth, contamination, tightening and chafing - very commonly the bowline, as this is one of the most oft-used knots.

Join Tim, from Boatcare Sussex, to see how easy it is to undo a completely snarled-up up bowline, that has been undisturbed for years, single handedly - by "breaking its back", also known as "taking off the hoodie", "pushing the loop back" and "voila"!

Can't get to your Sussex boat often enough, to look after the basics? We CAN - and probably for less that the diesel that it'd cost you to do it! We can keep your boat safe, ready to go and her value retained!
