Keeping mainsail up while anchoring??

I figured, why not if there are light winds? It offers some shade and doesn't have to be raised again. I had an argument with another about this and he told me it was ridiculous.

Any thoughts...

I'm trying to save $$$ so didn't want to spend $600 for a survey. I'm trying to leave that option for last.

Do boat surveyors do partial surveys? i.e. just of keel structure, etc?
