The "It's Knot as Easy as It Looks" puzzle on page 147, seems to be missing a single negative relation. Without this relation, I got two solutions just like mat100 way back in 2012.

This is a 4x5 puzzle.

Orders: First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth
Experts: Ashton, Avery, Dustin, Norbert, Sam
Groups: A, B, C, D, E
Knots: Bowline, Half-Hitch, Halyard, Sheep Shank, Sheet

I modified clue 5 to include the missing negative relation.

1. Dustin didn't give the first or second presentation and didn't give hands-on instruction to Group E.

2. The first presentation was about bowline knots.

3. The expert who worked with Group D gave a presentation sometime after the one who demonstrated how to make a sheet knot, who in turn gave a presentation sometime after the one who demonstrated the half-hitch (who wasn't Avery).

4. Between Ashton and the one who demonstrated how to make a half-hitch knot, one worked with Group C, and the other gave their presentation second.

5. Norbert (who didn't give the last presentation) worked with Group D.

6. The five experts were the one who worked with Group B, the ones who gave the first and last presentations, Ashton, and the one who demonstrated the sheep shank.
