Rib to shore, smallest tenders...

SO.. you've had to grab a mooring or anchor 100 yds from the shore. You don't want to swim and you don't have a tender towed behind or a friendly water taxi.
What do you do ?

Leave the tender on the mooring when you take the RIB out. Have you anywhere to store the tender ashore. That would seem your only problem
