Hi: I would consider getting an old beat up skiff ( aluminum
?) to carry all you need, will go great with your motor
and then leave skiff on your anchor
while off sailing ;done it many times myself, just tidy up excess rode
with some zip ties and dump excess into skiff when departing.Advantage is that anchor
stays on bottom well dug in and your spot is waiting for you when return. It sounds like you are anchored out for longer periods and if so, I wouldnt want to find out the hard way that well dug in anchor was exchanged for a newer untested setting. Of course you might want to add some line if you have all chain or even add a float.Just think of your well dug in anchor as a mooring
and treat accordingly. What no second anchor for your outing?
