I am learning about Christopher Columbus and sailors in my homeschool. The sailors had to know knots to be accepted onto the boats as help. Knots help them mend the boat while moving and sail across the Atlantic Ocean. The reef knot is a circle knot they would use for bundling ropes together. The clove hitch ends the rope against the wooden bar. The bowline knot is more like something you would tie into a sail. The knots were hard to learn, but they were useful in sailing.
