Wait I got it.

Use a breeches bouy.

First you neeed a Lyle Gun and some line, and a mortor shell.
Fire a shot to a tree and secure the line between your mast and a tree on shore. Than you simply shuffel back and forth to the boat in the breeches bouy as required.

see the link attached for more information.

goldingds,

Not very imaginative, but if you're interested in more pragmatic suggestions, inflatable kayaks come with compact air pumps, can compress to backpack size and are very efficient for short trips.

Hey guys, sorry I'm late. I think some of the above ideas have merit, but wanted to try and help with the free-flow of ideas.

1. You could use the main halyard and just swing across ala Tarzan style.
2. After making sure the sidedeck is clear, position yourself right near the stern. Have your friend motor at full power (Giv'er everything she's got Scotty), just before you reach the spot where the boat runs aground you start running forward (again at full speed), as you pass the shrouds yell out "NOW!" whence your friend puts the boat in neutral and slams on the brakes!!!! As you reach the bow pulpit, jump. Next thing you know, you are ashore. Repeat process for rest of crew.

3. (I like this one best) Let your friends go ashore, by whatever means they prearranged, tell them you will be along shortly. At this point you need to try and look busy. When they are well away from the boat and near shore, you slip the anchor and leave!!!!!! (Think Pirate!!) You become an instant legend, a boat owner, can change your name to something cool like "Golding Beard", and are rid of those dumb a#$ friends finally!

You can also stand on the edge of the boat....put your hands up high and yell....GOD MAKE THE SEAS OPEN.....but you need a LOT of faith....

Records show that a certain guy named Moises, did this trick a few years beack....so I was told....

Perhaps you could have your friends careen the boat while you are ate the masthead, then just step off???

T34C-

A couple of problems with your second idea... boats have no brakes, and a five ton keelboat is only going to stop quickly when it goes aground...which solves the getting ashore part of the problem, but has other issues.

The last one is funny, but evil... and would need careful consideration of possible retaliation tactics by the stranded friends and their families...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Details my friend details.... All of these issues have solutions. If Mr. Golding wants to, I'm sure we can solve these very minor issues for him. The friend could deploy the stern anchor for example. This method could gain in popularity and become known as the "quick stop island moor"?????

Retaliation by the friends wouldn't be my big concern. (We're not even sure they know how to get off the boat!!) Retaliation by the Coast Guard may be a problem.

That was a boom brake...not a boat brake... You can post it...but I'm not contradicting myself... you're just allowing your lousy grasp of the world's most important language get the best of you.... The boom brake does nothing to stop the boat... just the boom...
