Mooring just off beach - technique?
I've noticed on a few of the gallery pics, that people here often moor just off beaches when they're spending a couple of hours relaxing on the sand - so how's it done? Apols on the ignorance, previous boat was a hardboat with an inboard so I was reluctant to get too close too land. I'm assuming that stage 1 is to come right in, to offload passengers, and it would then seem that you go slightly out and drop the anchor. But ... do you then just lay out a little more anchor chain than the depth you're in, or use normal anchoring technique? I fancy trying this over the coming months, but would rather find out how to do it correctly here, rather than expensively experimenting on me own.
