A Different-Shaped Bow
Dr. Robert Leviton sails his O’Day 322 Tiiramisu out of Orienta Yacht Club in Mamaroneck, NY. 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.
