Knots for boating?

Hi,

Any boaters out here?

I would like to learn how to tie knots, specifically for boating / marine environments. I know nothing about knots.

So, I'd like a website, that not only explains which knots, and how to make them, but also *why* you would use that particular knot (i.e. what is the use of this knot).

Any suggestions?

Fishing too, or just boating?

Isn't this something they'd teach in boating classes?

Yep, when I took the American Red Cross sailing course almost 20 years ago they taught them. And then we were tested on them directly and in use on the boat.
