Re: Tying stern-to to shore

Sounds like med sailor has a peculiar degree of expertise in this area, much the way from the sound of it to how I got mine....
the reason for using poly line in the area the OP is asking about is because it floats and won't interfere with the dinghy, you can use it to pull yourself the few feet to shore, and because it isn't critical in most anchorages here - the protection is very good. Oh, and it's much cheaper ;>)
There is no tide, so slightly slack lines are fine up here. With a tide...not so much.
