Rowing out Shorelines
27 October 2015 | Caleta Point Lay
In the picture, Jean is rowing out a shoreline.
Using shorelines lets you get very close to steep shores, where you have good protection from the wind.
Our anchoring procedure when using shorelines is to anchor, then row out the first shoreline (in our case, this is a 200m blue, floating, polyethlyene line). Then winch the boat closer to that shoreline. Then row out the second shoreline (a 100m polyester, heavier, non-floating line) and winch it in.
So far, we haven't needed more than two shorelines.
