Anyone have any experience with an effective home made beach anchoring system? I live in Juneau, and most beaches around here are pretty rocky, so I'm looking for a system that allows me to anchor my skiff (16ft North River) out in the water while I'm camping on land. Awhile back, I saw that someone had posted info on a pully-type system, but I had difficulty with that.
My biggest worry is waking up in the morning, and seeing that my boat has drifted away! So...any suggestions on that would be great too (i.e.-extra security to ensure my boat is there when I get back!).
This is something that I would like to build during the winter, so I can have it up and running when summer hits. Thanks!
