    Knots

    There seem to be very few knots used our diving set ups.

    fishermans on a neclace
    some type of overhand knot on the pull dump
    another double overhand on spools and reels.

    the famous thinymajig knot for boltstaps.

    can we start a list of the other used ones and how they are used I know how to tie a bowline but dont seem to use it while diving.

    You can use a bowline for the loops at either end of your spool line or at the end of your reel. It's more scure than the ubiquitous overhand (thumb) knot on the bight. Personally I use a figure-of-eight on the bight for these.

    I use an artillery hitch to secure a buoy and tension the line

    Apart from that we pretty much use thumb and reef knots to assemble tie-ons
