Rope Care

Safety:

Rope, and the sports associated with rope, can be dangerous. Wrongly handled, gripped, or tied, rope can kill, maim, or burn. You could be the victim! So, handle rope with care, inspect and test any knot you tie, and respect any rope subject to a heavy load, e.g., a rope controlling a large sail, a mooring rope when you are docking or berthing, and especially your own climbing rope. Never try to control a heavily loaded rope or fishing line with your bare hands. Control rope by taking two or more turns round a winch, cleat, or post, and use appropriate equipment for fishing line. It is unfortunate, but true, that the danger associated with heavily loaded rope or fishing line is commonly learned by experience, which is often very painful and could be lethal.

Knots Weaken Rope

They do!  A great deal is written about which knots weaken a rope most. An angle, a kink, or a knot, stresses the fibers unevenly and weakens the rope. If this concerns you, you are using rope that's too thin. Although some knots in some ropes are claimed to only weaken a rope to about 80% of its rated strength, other knots weaken a rope to about 50%. It is therefore simpler, and certainly safer, to assume that even brand new rope will perform at no more than 50% of its rated breaking strength. And, if the rope is old, worn, or damaged by sunlight or chemicals - expect considerably less
