I quite like the look of the Anchorbuddy - although you'd still need some kind of line directly on to the anchor or you wouldn't be able to pull the anchor in on a stretchy line.

I've yet to try beaching my RIB and then setting it off slightly (for a picnic etc). It sounds moderately straightforward when explained here, but I'd actually like to see it done before attempting it on my own.

I did it a few years ago at East Head in Chichester harbour and it worked a treat much to my relief as there were several doubting Thomas's there who were hoping I would either :
A loose the boat in the tide
B Have to swim out to it
C anchor would fall back into the boat
as it was it all went perfectly to plan much to the annoyance of the many spectators/ experts waiting and hoping for the worst !
Try it you may like it .

Why not come in slowly engine trimmed, so prop splashing about. Slight spurt of speed at last moment, cut motor, final trim up and glide in up the beach. D-Day landing style What's a few scratches on the bottom of the rib; aint gonna do any harm (thought that was the point of having a rough and ready, go anywhere rib).
Unload motley crew and all parafinallier, tie anchor to bow line, push boat backwards, a quick Geoff Capes shot putt/hammer throw of anchor and line - job done.
Recovery carried out by member of crew who never contributes to petrol money or who always seems to forget to bring any food or drink. This task may be required of him more than once, if tide is going out.
