    Tied UP!

    The book was bought for my grandchildren, but I liked it so much that I have kept at hand and ordered another.

    What can I say other than the Wooden Boat crew is AWESOME! Thank you for including a "practice" piece of rope with my order. I was sending to my grandson so this was much appreciated. This book is timeless, thank you to the crew!
