Anyone have a good method for attaching an adjustable length anchor line to the bow tow/anchor/D-ring on an inflatable? I will be anchoring in varying depths from 20'-80' and need a way to tie off the correct length of line to the large D-ring under my bow (since there is no cleat, like on a fiberglass boat , to tie off on).
I'm thinking of tying a 4' section of line with a loop on the end to the D-ring on the bow, then tying a bowline knot in the anchor line at the appropriate length, and then clipping them together with a caribiner clip (so I don't have to lean over the bow and tie the anchor line to the D-ring. I might run another length of line from the caribiner clip to the cockpit to help bring the anchor up when it's time to go. Sound like a good idea or has someone come up with something better? Thanks!
