Re: Tying stern-to to shore

The biggest mistake first timers make when doing this is to secure the shore line in some way - tying it off or taking several wraps around a tree or ring (we have rings mounted in the rocks in some of the more popular anchorages.)

You don't want to have to row ashore again to cast off so just take it around the anchor point and back to the boat - that way you can simply cast off & retrieve the line from the boat.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
