1) It depends... you don't say where this cabin is located... and the laws vary from locality to locality.

2) It depends on the bottom. If the bottom is mud, then mushroom anchors are probably a good choice. If it is sand or gravel, I'd go with a helix anchor. If it is rock, I'd go with a big lead or steel block.

3) It depends. Size of the anchor depends on what kind of anchor you'll be using for the mooring as well as what size boat it is.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
