How to Tie Up a Raft on the Shore
There are many ways to tie up a raft on the shore. One of the fastest and best methods is to use a taut-line hitch knot to secure the bow line to a sand stake, tree or other solid anchor. In this video, we demonstrate how to use a sand stake, locking carabiner and rope to create a secure and adjustable tie-off to secure your boat using a taut-line hitch. The taut-line hitch shown here is tied on a bite with the rope doubled up, but you could also use a conventional taut-line hitch knot.
