Can't you use an angel weight. Have a longer painter put the weight have way down it so it keeps the boat pulled in at high water, when it dries out the ropes not pulling at an angle from the bow but from the weight.

Not sure I get you there mate. You'll have to explain it in JSP terms. (I.E. The thick bit of string goes through the shiny loop attched to the orange big bit )

This mooring is on a steep bank. When it dries the pontoon is at an alarming angle to walk across and the RIB is a hell of allot lower. It's cheap like the budgie though. Hoping (when money allows) to move it across the river to a better mooring.

Not as good as Polwarts but you get the jeest of it, ie orange thing your boat (not flooding hull hole in bow) black thing weight, grey bit rope and pontoon, blue stuff water and brown stuff mud.

Thanks lads. Phil, stick to the day job mate Your drawing isn't far off what it's like except it's a little flatter. Would have to do the same with one of the U bolts on the transom. Any suggestions what to use as weights?

I did auto cad at college, well I changed the name on someone elses and passed! Anything heavy will do. The only down side is if its heavy then someone might be inclined to nick it. A couple of big flanges should do or bags full of sand or shot blast grit?

Will have a look what I've got in my shed tonight. If I used naughty kids would I get down for murder or child labour?
