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.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
