After we took another bathroom break, Mr. Tact finally brought us aboard the Balclutha. Mr. Tact led us to the deck right outside the sleeping quarters. We sat down in the exact same order ( with the crew mate in front ). She was testing us on tying knots ( so boring ). This was all he said,” Who could tie the bowline/square/cleat hitch knot?” The funny thing was, when we a lot of people couldn’t tie the bowline knot, she tried to show us it, but she couldn’t tie it either.She called a girl up to tie bowline knot, she could tie a bowline knot.
