Same as the others.

On a variation, if you on a visitor mooring, you can also tie the painter to that, but add a short retreival line unless you got a boathook.

Whatever happens, remenber to have the boat end of the anchor warp fixed to something inside the hull (cleat or an eye nut on the back of the D- ring threads at the bow)

Thats where I go wrong, I just hang over the bow trying to find the D ring!

a rope that is longer enough to reach the prop is not a painter!...

i teach definition of painter: rope attached to bow, that can not foul engine.

Retrieval is easy as you still have the anchor rope in the boat so you can pull the painter round and untie it.
I have the painter either clipped to the lifelines on the tube or on the grab handle on the console.
Sorry for the thread revival, but I was about to ask a similar question. Can you please post a pic or diagram so that I can better understand this method?
Thanks

I attach the painter (spliced to the D ring on the hull) to the anchor warp with a rolling hitch, then ease the warp out to give plenty of slack (to allow for the boat sheering in the gusts) and make it fast to a side cleat on the tube as a back up. Even in very strong winds overnight, the rolling hitch has held and not slipped.

Easy, quick and cheap.

'Painter' is English nautical jargon for the length of rope attached (usually permanently) to the bow of a small boat/dinghy, which is used to tie the boat up to something, or tow it.

On RIBs it is usually permanently attached to the 'D' ring on the stem head (bow) and led to a cleat on the tubes when under way. You must make sure that it is not long enough to foul the propeller if it falls over the side.
