I don't want to re-open a discussion of "dogs" vs "knots" (although I am still not sure which to agree with) In reading this forum I came across the idea of using a prusik knot to control out of weight line sets--I think they even mention it on the Jr Clancy web site.
Soooo I created a loop of rope using the double fisherman's knot and proceeded to tie a Prusik to my operating line (its not out of balance--just practicing)
How do I tie the loop to the rail? We have snub lines supplied by the rigging company and training on the snub knot.
