Nice thread resurection! I'm confused now though did Gotchi:

- spike his mum's drink
- leave his kit lying around for her to stumble over
- send his mother out to retrieve the anchor?

Tripping means attaching a line to the anchor (seperate from the main line). Its attached at the head not the stem like a normal anchor line.

To retrieve the anchor you pull the tripping line which (in theory) allows you to uppl it out in the opposite direction to its been being tugged in a F7 with 5knots of tide all night.

Sailtrain: Anchoring and mooring, Choice of an anchorage.

Convention says the tripping line is put on a bouy and so there is very little force on the line and it cant pull it out by accident.

Back on PC.

The trippy bit down 'ere, is to balance the anchor,chain and correct length of line on the prow (easy on a rib), shove the boat stern first away from the shore paying out the trip line as she goes. When the boat is at the required distance from the shore, give the trip line a tug and it pulls the anchor into the water. Attach the shore end of the trip line to a rock or small folding anchor. Pull on trip line to recover boat.
Be sure to attach the trip line to the blade end of the anchor, there's usually a hole, otherwise you wont pull it out.

Also, if the trip line is a bit floaty, you don't need clowns motoring about between the anchored boat and the shore.

I tend to use it in the eve after the clueless wonders have packed up and ferked off. Saves me going for a swim after a Glass of Rioja and a sossage.
