Re: Boat in Camping on CR
For anchoring and beach camping in the columbia, I love the 25' or so bungee cords sold at G.I. Joes and probably other places. Anchor bow out with your normal anchor set up with the bungee being the final 15' to your bow. Reverse your stern to shore and jump out with a stern line, while your boat conveniently bungees back out to deeper water. The boat rides nicely in the ship traffic wakes and you are protected from a low tide beaching.
