Re: Tying stern-to to shore

This Stern tie reel holds 400' of 3/8" Samson double braided float line and just hangs off of the push pit. I think it is the neatest reel on the market anyways. Also, I was told that you just need to put some twists in the webbing stern ties so that they do not whistle at anchor, but they don't hold enough line to go to shore and back.

I've spliced loops into one end of mine, it's very easy to splice... It does handle knots/cleating well, far better than polypro, but probably not as nicely as the Samson Floatline, or NER's Dinghy Tow Rope, which would be another good choice...

Can't speak for the long-term UV exposure issue, but I've not noticed any hint of degradation, it's certainly superior to polypro...

Re: Tying stern-to to shore

Here's what we did the first time, and it worked great.

Came into the small anchorage. Floated around in the middle for a bit. Pointed all over and looked confused. Started for a space next to a boat much, much nicer then ours that had a guy in the cockpit. He hoped in his dingy and came rushing out to lend us a friendly hand.

After getting a little help the first time, it all made much more sense the second time. Apparently it showed too, cause everyone just watched, with boat hooks in hand rather then rushing out to help. (And we did it without a hitch the second time.)

I also then found it to be a great way to meet people, heading out to help the confused looking ones that is...

The webbing reels that I have used are way too short.

The webbing setups on spools look nice as a different option but are PRICEY and webbing won't stand up to any chafe at all.

Re: Tying stern-to to shore

Yeah, I wouldn't trust my boat to polypro either, I hate that crap...

Lugger Line from Yale makes an excellent shoreline, but it's not offered in a size smaller than 1/2"...

Lugger Line - Single Braided Rope & Single Braid Rope - Industrial Rope | Yale Cordage

It's available from Hamilton Marine at a pretty reasonable price, a 600' spool is about $325...

Re: Tying stern-to to shore

I think it was this one, but it doesn't float, it sinks.
