Very much depends on your local conditions. There's a heck of a lot of shallow water here in Poole and so the approach to some beaches has between 0.5 and 1.5m of water underneath it for a distance of some 200m away from shore. Clearly in this case 10m of rope with 2m of chain is way more than enough, but I could quite imagine that this would be no-where near enough for many locations.

I guess the important thing is making sure that the anchor rode is running at a shallow angle to the sea bottom. As long as you're doing that your anchor will hold and then everything else can vary to make life easier for yourself

Use a running mooring (Frape)

I use a 100m line which runs from the bow through a shackle on the end of a length of chain on the anchor. Drop the anchor, reverse into beach, get off holding free end of line, then pull the line to take the boat off the beach. You either need another line to pull the boat in again, or tie the loose end back to the transom and put a big rock on the loop. Simple really!

OK in Scotland, you'd be a bit of an 'obstacle' down here where the best beaches get a bit busy. 30 boats off of one small beach is not uncommon.

To get this little bit of hassle with boating I'm looking at getting a small tender that I can store deflated in the front of the boat and carry an electric pump to blow it up when I get to the beach.

I use a technique which has already been covered. I've a picture on my website that illustrates the how.

What I have set up , is a running loop system, before you throw out the anchor, tie a line to the for deck cleat, run it through the anchor shackle or a ring, then tie this to the stern of the boat, reverse into shore or you can drive in, take the loop to the beach and pull the boat out make fast on the beach, and reverse the the action to bring the boat to shore

I got to this website ok by just going to www.solentribster.com first then clicking on tips and hints; seems an excellent site with lots of tips and hints, however:

Didn't understand what was described for the beach mooring . Call me Mr thiccky I know.

Don't see how you can push Rib offshore then apply anchor; where exactly is the anchor relative to the shore? I assume the Bow faces the shore with this technique?

Also, some are describing reversing into shore. How do you achieve that with the engine down (even if tilted up); wouldn't fancy hitting the bottom with the prop. Or are you using an Aux? or just getting off when mid depth?

All techniques seem to be different than described in my RYA Powerboat book, but I bow to experience.

I do like Biggles idea of taking a miniboat with you; I might use my 2 man towable toy ring (flat version) and paddle in.

Trot is what we call a 'Trip' down yer. The pic describes it perfectly. Your not reading and digesting. That line in the pic is the 'Trip line' not the anchor line. The anchor line goes from the anchor to the boat, the trip line goes from the front of the anchor to the shore. Pull the trip line and first is dislodges the anchor from the sand, keep pulling and you'll pull the anchor along with the boat ashore. Any clearer?

I don't get it either. Recovering the boat when you want to leave, I understand. But, how do you shove the boat out to sea far enough against breaking waves (howwever small) to deploy the anchor in water deep enough?
