I was thinking more of hauling the boat back to shore and out again for when you don't want to get wet .

Seen the thing you are on about - looks a good idea in principal but why not just pull the boat up on the beach?

also with a huge tidal range may not be very practical - in Swansea you would need literally a mile of bungee!!!

You'll need a pulley at the anchor end.

I think the pulley at the anchor end is still best ,

If its a nice sandy beach then i do pull the boat up iwas thinking of more rocky shores , also some of my local beaches are sandy at high water but expose rocks at low that make re launching very dificult. It needs 3 to lift my sib and usually there is only 2 of us plus kid
