Used it almost every day when I was a kid with an 18foot open launch, and even with a 32foot yacht. no worries pulling up the anchor as you are sliding it backwards, infact the drag of the boat on the line will tend to lift the anchor off the bottem as you pull it in anyway. Only problem is lots of big rocks.

BTW Nik, think you will find that the lines over the beach at St Marys and many other places tend to be running morings and are loops left in place, not temp anchoring.

I like it but how do you stop all the line and chain just falling on top of the anchor

pull on the release line as the ancor is dropping and any bundle of chain ( there is a saying about that but not sure I should say it on here) will land behind the hook and sort itself out as the boat rides.

By far the best thing to do is below...


Motor to the beach, let your passengers off. Take your shirt off and hand to one of the passengers on the beach. Motor back out, pay out anchor, turn off engine.

Dive into cool refreshing water.

Swim to beach.

Dry off in the sun.

Replace shirt to avoid sunburn.


Works like a treat down here most weekends.

I hope you all find this tip useful.
