I suggest you try anchoring off the stern since it is free to try and easy. Anchor as normal and then walk the rode to the stern cleat. It also offers the advantage that it directs the breeze into the cabin on hot days. Not a good solution if the wind is really honking but good overall.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
