He writes: I am not sure where I learned the trick of the secure shoelace tie; from one of our seasoned yachtsmen or reading a faded copy of Chapman’s, but I feel obliged to share with your readers this simple tie that over the years has kept my laces from falling apart at the most inconvenient of times.
