Not sure I understand why you think it's necessary to go through all the hinckiness of a stern drop. Once you droppe the anchor, you can pull forward on the boom and back the boat down under sail. If there's enough wind, you don't even need to do that, just have patience. I rarely use my engine to anchor, just to weigh (I'm getting to old to wrestle with weighing under sail).
