Re: My last little bit of planning

A stern anchor will slide down the rocky shore, pulling the boat forward toward the bow anchor, which may also be pulling down and forward. Where tying up to the shore, restrains you toward the shore.

Remember you are tying up on a steep hillside, which just happens to have a lot of water next to it, in most cases. The trick is not to "fall" down the hill.
