Working on compiling a list if honours which require knots, sort of a cross reference so I know if a Pathfinder learns a knot, the skill applies to which honours.

I'll paste in my list so far (which I hope you find useful).
Please comment, and or point out more honours with knot requirements if you know of any.

Thanks; Gerald

Basic Rescue:

10 Know how to properly use ropes and knots as follows:
  • a. Tie knots for joining ropes together
  • b. Tie knots for shortening a rope
  • c. Tie knots for use around a person for a rescue
  • d. Coil and accurately throw a light and a heavy 50-foot (15.2 m) rope.

  • 6. Name four of the most useful knots in seamanship. Know how to tie them and give their principal uses.

  • 5. Demonstrate and explain how to tie a horse safely with a manger knot and with a bowline knot using the correct length of rope and tying at the correct height from the ground.

Hey Gerald - I'm working on a web-based GPL project to manage what I call "structured requirements". It can be applied to honors, AY, IA, Master Awards, Boy Scout Merit Badges, Girl Scouts, Brownies, Cub Scouts, Girl Guides, Royal Rangers, etc - basically anything that awards insignia based on well-structured requirements. If all goes as planned, it will be able to list all the honors a requirement applies to. I think you are probably well-qualified to help on this project if you have time. If interested, you can find it on sourceforge here.

Thanks for the reply and info.

I'll take a peek around when I have a minute or two, but that may be a while.
(Did manage to write one section of an honour in the wiki book though)
