We spent hours playing with our phones and tablets, looking for the coolest apps for the boater. Here are the most intriguing:

Knots 3D

Not sure of the difference between a sheep shank and a surgeon's knot? Then you need Knots 3D. This simple, straightforward app gives easy-to-follow 3D animations of the most common knots for boaters and fishermen. Additionally, there's a section on decorative knots so you could, perhaps, make a nice rope door mat to show off your skills. Animations can be slowed down or paused entirely, enabling you to work at your own pace.
