Lorry Dolly

Chas, from narrowboat 'Long White Cloud' tied this awesome knot for us, which was originally used by truckers to keep their loads tied down securely.

Lorry Dolly - BackLorry Dolly - FrontThere were a lot of twists and turns in there, so it will take some time to commit to memory. But, it acts as a self contained block and tackle, which saves us messing about with rope ends, when trying to pull the boat in. He also made me drink Pimms all evening, and gave Sumo some dog treats. Cheers Chas..
