Keep an eye on the tide Andy and plan ahead!

Three of us attempted the Herculean task of digging Pete 7's two ton Pac out of the sand last year at Priory Bay!!! Old Spice don't move 'till she's ready that's for sure!!!

Beaches like Priory aren't so bad, but there are alot of steeply banked shingle beaches in the area that I was thinking of that can be a nightmare, the one I had a problem with was in the mouth of Langston Harbour by the Public slipway whilst I was waiting for someone. It was too deep for the Anchor and wade technique.

We planned a BBQ on Priory Bay, so the ribs were beached at half tide and grapple anchors run out to sea. Once secure we then set about taking over the beach with tents, wind breaks etc. Seem to remember Katie bringing Salmon which was superb on a barbie and makes a nice change from raw chicken. The smaller ribs floated off in a couple of inches but Old Spice needed a little more water so we floated free about 7pm.

Don't have a problem beaching so long as its really calm, if not the anchoring off would be the better option.

Here's the true story. (A parable of sorts).

One day St. Peter of the Holy Smoke Ribbing Fraternity sallied forth towards Priory Bay with many disciples in tow.

As he sat on the beach teaching the flock about the merits of console changing, birds nest wiring, using a sweeping brush handle as a throttle and a flour bin for a bench seat (glassed in who's gonna know?), it came to his attention that people might be getting hungry. So he made one tin of sardines and a left-over bun go amongst the multitude 'till all had enough ('I've had enough of this' they were heard to say). He then changed some 2 stroke oil into wine which went down a treat.

All went back to their boats and he bid them be on their way. He himself sorted out a few things first for lo! he walked across the water, restarted someone's engine and fixed a burning bush before returning to the beach and his own boat.

'Ah feck it' quoth he. ''Tis beached. What time is the tide back in again?' At this he tore his hair out in frustration.

As the hours went by, in desperation a few of his followers tried to move the enormous craft to no avail. St. Peter remembered that now his hair was short, he had no special powers.

So wait they did.

The moral of the parable being :

Watch the tides in Priory Bay

That stretchy rope looks good - I wonder if you could use it or the smaller PWC ones for mooring? It would stretch for the tide going out and retract for the rising tide.
Any reasons why not??

I realy enjoyed reading that . After using all these powers couldn't he have made a petrol engine out of his diesel and banished the Solent FOG forever .

They work well. Use a PWC (smaller) one to moor my boat in a cove with about a 6' tide change. Put out 2 anchors, one offthe stern with the "bungee" on it and another on shore. Holds the boat off until you are ready to board. As I said I use it in a cove where its calm, might be a bit more of a challange if water is rough.
