"I'm going to drop a couple of extra anchors in the water, just to be safe. "
That might be a very expensive mistake in Pennekamp. If there is coral in the area, or seagrass in the area...all sorts of regs against damaging the bottom and that's often why there are mooring balls instead of an anchorage area.
Just make Real Damned Sure you can drop anchors without getting a very expensive bill for doing so, Floriduh is not like New England when it comes to anchors and bottoms.
