Mooring advice needed

the mushroom anchors we use dig in to the bottom because the angle of the lip and the length of the shank. most of the moorings stayed in place and were hard to pick up at the end of the season. QCYC has 3 different bottom types, from a mud with clay to river sand and a hard packed clay. as the tide changes and the boats settle in the other side of the mushroom pulls the anchor in deeper. Its just advice. How do the other boaters hook down in the gravel??? Are there anyother boats there? Have you thought about getting a real slip?? you may also think about old railcar wheels stacked and welded together with a ring.good luck getting them back up at the end of the season
