Re: Bow/Stern rope handle

If I understand your question Tom, the knot you're looking for is the "Double Fishermans" knot in the link Mike posted above.

I have done this on my boat, but will likely change it to a "monkey's fist" or some other similar knot. With the "loop" and double fisherman's you have the possibility of getting your hand caught if you grab it in surf.

Lots of possibilities with rope and knots as grab handles.
