Re: Reals of rope on stern

I have heard that pulling rope back
from around a tree can scar the tree.

Re: Reals of rope on stern

Personally, I prefer to keep 'special use' lines stowed below decks until needed.

Protects lines from UV and theft and will keep them dry and clean once you have maintained them after use.

Also, other than long heavy towing warp, poly floating beach lines are easier to have in 3 sections of 150ft so that they can have multi functions if needed, and you only use what you need.

My whole stern section is a Lazarette which is primarily my line locker.

Emotionally?

Re: Reals of rope on stern

You're right JONGLEUR. Trees in the Australian outback often die from emotional scarring.....no bark missing, nothing...three months later, tree dead.
We use tree protectors, no damage.
The definitive expert on reels on deck is probably Skip Novak as mentioned earlier.
Study this man and learn heaps about tethering to rocks in Patagonia which seems a pretty wild place.
Skip uses wire around the rocks.
Take the time to read (and video) Pelagic/Skip Novak and all will be revealed.

Re: Reals of rope on stern

I always hug my tree before leaving...

Seriously, Skips video was an extremely tight situation where a spiderweb was needed.

Personally I prefer the high up method to avoid big tide issues and to keep the line from chaffing on rocks or Coral.

Big Trees just work better for that and easier to retrieve.

If it is a tie up because of a 'steep to' Anchorage I first haul in tight to test tree and anchor with windlass, then ease off a bit to let boat breath and react to early or late thermal wind changes.

Where Skip was anchoring was an extreme condition and he rightly took extreme caution.
