Re: Holding in Davis bay
Never done it, but it looks like a decent shelving beach, and as you know in settled weather you can anchor anywhere overnight as a rule. I don't believe there's a good dinghy drop spot other than the beach.
There is the Selma Park breakwater just NW of Davis bay that may have some possibilities, closer to Sechelt proper.
