SCILLY LINES


This is how boats are moored in the Scillies. Much easier than tying up to a buoy as you can haul it in or out according to the tide. You row in to shore jump out and then use the pully to get the boat back out in the water.
This is the other end of the lines. Here on Town Beach in Hugh Town (which is the main beach on the main island of St Marys) the top end is attached to the stone wall at the back of the beach.

Will try to change bottom pic as it comes out far too big when you click on it.
