Hi there all,
this is my first year with a RIB (4.2m Valke - 40hp outboard) and we are having great fun. One of the problems we have is the Jurassic Coast of Lyme Bay (Dorset/Devon) is that it is pebbles as opposed to sand and whilst we can find beaches that are are sea locked (so no tourists) and can get ashore by getting wet or using a ringo/doughnut - it takes ages and is a real nightmare getting all the picnic gear, BBQ etc ashore and back in the boat at the end of the day.
If I am going to beach - what should I avoid and what should I do?
If I am going to anchor - I thought I might try and make one of these things
has anyone ever tried something similar like this? On a pebble beach?
or an achor buddy type rope (http://www.anchorbuddy.com/
) does anyone use them or know where to get them in England?
but I still need to get people ashore and I am therefore interested in how others go about landing and recovering a family and all its gear.
Look forward to hearing from the experts.
