    I've read your info on rigging a kayak and found it very useful. One quick question, I noted your line is 60m long, do you pay all this out every time?

    Just wondering as I know you have attached a buoy, you must have to, to keep the buoy near the kayak.

    Is this correct?

    yes thats the way I do it Neil, you would be limited to about 60ft depth with that set up, but I have never needed to anchor any deeper of our coast, if its only 20ft i just let it all out anyway which means you have very little chance of tripping the anchor. I put the bouy about 5m from the yak, and use a gibbs type quick release clip to secure it so any problem or you want to go & help your mate without lifting the anchor, a quick pull & you are free.

    there are a few other ways to do this but this is my set up which i am confident with, I keep tweaking but really the simpler the better :yes:

    Cheers for that, It looked like the only way to do it.

    Otherwise I suppose you have lots of line on your kayak and it would be difficult to escape quickly if needed.

    I've used a 'Camcleat' to hold the line, so one quick flick and your free. It's all ready to go now and will try soon. Thanks for your help.

    P.S It's Ian not Neil... :laugh:
