Boating Tips & Tutorials: How to Tie a Square or Reef Knot

Captain Dave shows us how to tie a square/reef knot. The square knot is designed to tie two lines of equal diameter together. First, make a twist one direction, another the other direction and finally pull the standing ends tight. Be sure to keep your square knot under load, if it is not under load it can come apart. If tied correctly, the square knot can be easily untied. Check out our other videos for more great boating tips!
