I have anchored alone various times and didnt have to resort to dragging the anchor or anything else back to the cockpit (and I really dont want a boat length of chain banging on my gel coat).

Unless I am anchoring in a tight spot (and so need to get my wife to help) I just motor upwind to the approximate spot, put the engine in neutral, run up to the bow and let the anchor go. When I have enough chain out I go back to the cockpit to back down on it. I dont get to choose the EXACT spot the anchor sets but how often do you get to do that anyway?
