I just like the idea of using a rigid foam float at the end of the line instead of a carabiner. The float part should be big enough to slightly hang up in smallish pocket even if it unzips. You just grab the float, stuff and zip in the pocket to hook up (maybe 5 seconds), then unzip and toss out the float to release (maybe 3 seconds). You can also instantly adjust the length of line quickly by making the float out of an scrap wooden yard stick or lath (that floats) in the shape of a cord winder (cut to length so it just hangs up inside of a designated pocket). Lots of possibilities...

So you tye the foam to the end of the line and wrap the line around the pillion & back into a pocket on your tube and zip it back up?

Fishbonz,

Yes, basically I like the idea of an instant hook up and release station that can tell you where you have been or will be hovering. Hook to the pylon throwing the float- as previously described, but cinch the hook end around the pylon. Usually there is at least a light wind, so the float will be downwind from the pylon. Also, wind the rope length if you want to work from a position closer or further away from the pylon. Then, add a second lightweight snap hook on the float itself to quickly hook up, if you don't want to zip up the float itself into a pocket. I haven't tested it yet, but seems like an idea to try.
