This is fairly standard text book stuff for yachts and I supose other small craft in heavy weather but I had never thought of it for a small rib.
Apart from the fellow with his motorway maintenance kit has anybody else tried it?
What length of line did they use and did they attach anything to the end assuming they didnít have a handy traffic cone to hand?
Did they worry about the line at any stage fowling the prop?
