Shore lines are wonderful for securing the boat in small, deep coves. Shore lines are often challenging to set and retrieve. Here, Carolina is stepping out of the dinghy onto a rock to untie our shoreline in preparation for leaving. Note the dinghy's bow line (painter) in Carolina's left hand, to tie up the dinghy so it doesn't float away while dealing with the shoreline. Note also the beating that a dinghy takes doing shorelines--frequently landing on and against rocks.
