I have a question for you adventurers out there that have experience in beaching your boat for camping. I'm going to be doing some camping in one of the cove areas across from Homer and I'm not certain how I should secure the boat on the beach. My vessel is small, a 17' Hewescraft Searunner, and I was thinking of using an anchor in the stern and a rope in the the bow that would be tied to shore. I was planning to beach at high tide and let it settle at low tide. This is for a hunting trip and I would be spending time on shore with possible trips back to the boat for fishing now and then if hunting is not going well. Since I haven't done this before, I thought I'd ask the experts. I've only beached temporarily prior to this and didn't need to worry about the tides.
I appreciate any suggestions/comments/advice.
