Great pictures happy memories it looks a bit choppy on the beach.Looks like you had a good catch with your father rod still in hand.
The sea unites I have been a yacht sailer my father was fortunate enough to own and campaign offshore racing yachts . I taught navigation on offshore sailing for a time. Then I worked on Creole Mr Guccis's Yacht a 65 metre staysail 3 masted schooner and the best was a 75ft gaff rigged cutter built in 1898 it had no engine no winches just tackles and brute strength whilst I was with her we did two Nioulargues at St Tropez - the festival of sail -classic yacht racing the last of the med season having done regattas at Imperia ,Nice, Cannes Antibes .
I like been on the water but now on my terms not someone else's.

Some fun with lanyard knots

I often do splices and occasional leatherwork for people I also like hand stitching canvas .

Great pictures and nice diamond knots

The diamond knots are used as button knots on soft eyes which are used instead of shackles to save weight this one has a breaking strain of something like 5000 kilos it is made of dymnema hollow braid line so these only take about 15 minutes to make or less if you make them all the time.
