Have you ever tried to rig your own sailboat? How about tying up the boat to the dock? Have you ever made a ladder or hoist? Learning rigging can be tricky, but with the U.S. Army Guide to Rigging (FM 5-125), you'll learn everything you need to know about rigging, from how to properly tie a rope to a rock to how to make rope chairs and build whole scaffolding structures! This comprehensive guide is full of crucial rigging techniques, procedures, and applications used in both dire and everyday situations everywhere by the U.S. Army.

This informative and thorough guide draws upon the real-life experiences of soldiers installed in positions around the globe, whose duties require rigging, in all its variations and forms.
