My boat doesn't move much at anchor, since I believe in heavy ground tackle as a form a cheap insurance for a good night's rest. You sound like you anchor like a powerboater.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I hear ya SD - I was the only guy in Boston with a 28' boat and a 45' boat anchor and all chain and no windless. Of course - I lived on anchor in the summer and took a train 1-2 hours into the city - so it was nice to be "sure".

Plan the flow of work so that things can either be done from one place or that all work can be done sequencely as you move about the boat.

The trickiest thing has been setting and recovering a spinnaker by myself with a close second being planning far enough ahead to allow for boat handling without an engine.
All the best,

hi, how do you go about setting and dousing a spinnaker by yourself? is this w/ or w/out a pole? is there any wind parameters you work w/in?
cheers
