Colin Dewey

A fine sailor and rope weaver who wanted a Frenchified Cornell PhD and got it despite the best advice we could give him.


  1. My PhD is 100% English Roast Beef, as my experience on the academic job market has proven. God save good Queen Bess, and thank God the Merchant Navy would have me back.
    And I can still tie a turk's head; starting several on my own railing tomorrow.

  2. This Turk's Head corrected a design flaw that could have taken off a finger. It is as sturdy as the moment Colin Dewey finished it.
