    Re: Knot strength

    Except that the extra tucks don't weaken the part of the
    line they tuck into any more than the first three weaken
    their part of the rope.
    
    That is why I would like data on where the failures took
    place.
    
    Also, extra turns on a cleat waste time uncleating, but
    don't weakenthe attachment.
