Stern anchor suggestions

Santeana is right.

I have some experience in the Med (several years), mainly in the South Coast of Spain and the Balearic Islands. The anchorages are so crowded or are so small that in the ones that are suited for using a bow anchor, it is much more simpler to take a line ashore.
The ones that have a bow anchor setup are normally Scandinavian boats (they use it in their waters) and in a lot of Scandinavian boats this setup comes as an option. Perhaps you should take a look at some setups, it would give you some ideas that probably work well.
