I am too far from shore to use a tractor.

This is for a 18k lb boat so I doubt pvc will do the trick, but I do like that idea!

On another note, if your just wanting to tie up your boat.... I drove a piece of heavy rebar down with a sledgehammer then slipped a piece of 1.5" PVC pipe over it, flexes with the waves and wont hurt the boat if it touches it. I have two next to my dock and tie off to them so that the boat will not touch the dock - really works good
That's a good idea, just for something to tie up to. A good 10' stick of #6 rebar drove in the ground cover it with 2" PVC drove in a couple of feet around it. Fill the PVC with concrete. Maybe even a 3 or 4 inch PVC.
