Sorry Captain Bob, but there is an error in your version of the rolling hitch. A correct rolling hitch finishes with a half hitch in the opposing direction to the start of the knot. This is the critical feature that creates the bite in the knot to enable it to be tensioned.

Thank you Deborah.  I appreciate your pointing out my mistake. Can't figure out how it got through so many views without anyone noticing. Until you of course. I didn't even notice until you pointed it out thanks again and smooth sailing.
