Anchor retrieval

Is there a simple solution.......

Anchor attaches to front of small RIB - D ring on hull, no fair lead or cleat on front tube.
To retrieve the anchor we would need to lean a long way over the bow tube to pull the rope in - not always easy!
Is it best to attach a small line to the anchor rope and attach inside the boat to use as a 'slave' to pull in the main line?

Attach a painter to the D ring on the outside of the hull and tie the anchor rope to a point inside the hull. When you anchor, pay out the required amount of line, tie a loop into the anchor rope and tie the painter to the loop. That way the strain is taken by the painter line on the D ring and you still have the rest of the anchor rope inside the boat to haul the painter back in when you need to recover the anchor.

You will also find its a much dryer ride as the bow doesnt get pulled under as it does when you run the anchor over the bow

if you tie a bowlin in the painter and use a quick realease knott in the anchor line then one good tug on the anchor line and its released from the painter line. easy :-)

Attach the painter to the anchor line with a rolling hitch, pay out some slack so the weight comes on the painter and a bit more to allow for the boat sheering then make the anchor line fast aboard.
