Perhaps, in your diagram, if the painter was not put thru a ring (as I think you describe), but tied to the running line, this would pull the boat out to the anchor, and as long as the shore end of the line was firmly fastened in some way, this would solve problem 1. i.e. the boat drifting back to shore.

I dont foresee any way of solving problem 2 i.e. floating/submerged line fouling an incoming/outgoing boat EXCEPT pulling the line as tight as the tide allows and attaching a floating marker(s) along the line itself, though this is not an elegant solution.

Brian, click here.

I'll also add that if you're hand pulling your Scorpion and the wind is against you, you may not manage, indeed, the boat may take you off your feet and the whole thing will go pear shaped. With my present boat I've stopped doing it for that reason and I use a dingy. If I feel the weather may be dodgy I also lay a line from the anchored rib to the shore to which the dingy is clipped. It's a long way from the Outer Isles to Canada if the wind is offshore and you miss your target. I use a 6mm polyester rope which sinks. A long length is stowed on a reel and takes up very little stowage space on the boat. BTW, there are so few boats in the Islands that a floating rope is unlikely to be a problem unless you are anchoring in the vicinity of a harbour.

sorry I think that is my drawing skills. It was meant to be as you / Jambo described with the painter fixed to a secure point/loop in the running line. The drift to shore comment was if you made the running lines slack enough to sink - then the boat would be free to drift.

I have seen it decribed elsewhere along the lines in this new doodle. The side of the rope which doesn't go through the anchor can be slack (and so sink) until you want to pull the boat back in.

I've never tried this so it may be that it gets fouled on rough bottoms too easily or rope chaffs etc.

Wise words indeed, Jeff. Ones I shall take account of. I never thought of rigging a dingy line to my shore line via a carabiner. Could make getting back to the boat v. swift in the right weather conditions!
