Can a boat like a RIB at the pin end of the line relay information to the commitee boat saying which boats are over the line that the commitee boat can't see?

yes, I have been on a RIB many times when they have been at the end of the startline and have written down the numbers of boats who were over and gave them to the comitee boat and they were disqualified

I think all opens (and even some club races if there is a boat free) at Grafham use this.

Yep.  Also seen that happen.

Those caught were going to protest saying that the RO should have re-started, but the simple reply was "I could tell who was NOT over the line, and that is all I needed"

If there is a boat on the Pin End who informs the RO what boats are/aren't over the line then they MUST be anchored otherwise you can protest them if you are called. If you think about it, how can you judge what's moving over a fixed line if the person judging is themselves moving?

Caveat - shrewd RO will merely say that they were asking the people in the boat to "confirm THE RO's observations".
