RE: Stern tie - I need your opinion
While you are having trouble getting back to the stern of the boat,* stop and chat with a neighboring boat,** maybe even have a cocktail with them,** further backing your non-challance.**
All the while your boat,* partially anchored swings wildly away from shore.
Carry a pen with you , as when you do get back to the boat,* partially inebriated,* you will probably be met with divorce papers.
Once aboard,* follow with more drink.
