OK, so at the risk of sounding stupid or ill prepared I have a question in regards to the tide and anchoring during a bear hunt on POW in May. I do have some good experience handling boats in fresh water, and some salt water experience. Pretty much the only time I ever needed to worry about dealing with the tide, AND anchoring to go ashore was on a Kodiak Goat hunt a couple years ago. The skiff we rented on Kodiak, came equipped with a bungi cord system that allowed us to drop anchor in deep water, motor to shore, tie off a long line from the shore to the boat, and then let the bungi pull the boat back out to deep water. I am sure many of you are familiar with this system. It sure worked slick, and I felt very comfortable using it.
Now the skiff we have arranged to rent on POW does come with an anchor but not with the bungi system. So my question is, can someone give me some advice on how to handle the logistics of anchoring the boat along the shore when we get out to chase bears. I have lots of ideas on how to make this work, but wanted to run it by you guys to get the tried and true answer.
Thanks in advance for helping out a poor land lubber.......
