Obviously many of the techniques will only be any good with the right sea conditions.
+1 Its one I use all the time ... one of the best Christmas presents I got last year, was a reel of loop my dad had made up for me specially with built in pully's .. it works fine in hefty winds too but beach length is the problem and up where we go they're all different, so you sometimes have to shift your set a couple of times in an afternoon say, but that aint a hardship.

If peeps want to make one up, just make sure your pulley or basic shackle at the deep water end has a swivel on it otherwise you gunna get wet .. mind you it makes you feel you've earned your next beer

What sort of pulley do you use?

Basic sketch of set up .

NOTE ! If you just use a shackle to run the rope through instead of a pulley
remember to secure (mouse ) wire or cable tie the pin otherwise if the shackle turns around on itself the pin could unscrew itself when the rope is pulled through it .

For a shore anchor in your above description I've used a paddle many a time. You need to tie a line to the middle of it and bury it in the sand or shingle at 90 degrees to the line. A knotted rope slotted into a crack between boulders also works very well.

One of those folding grapnel anchors is ideal as a beach anchor.

I was thinking of using one of those dog lead ground spikes if I can find decent stainless one.

In danger of hijacking thread here but similiar subject, I usually anchor in sand hence use Danforth style but pain to store on small boat, have been told folding grapnel would hold just as well providing it has chain at least length of boat which would also give me good all round solution for all situations but still a bit anxious it will drag in windy conditions

Any thoughts?
