A number of years ago we anchored where George B suggested in the boat below. I thought the wind was going to take off the wheel house. The anchor line was straight out and tighter than a guitar spring. It was a long night.

The forecast calls for some wind:

Coastal Waters Forecast for Waters from Cape Mendocino to Pt. Arena CA from 10 to 60 nm (PZZ475)

Suggest you have lots of line out. When we pulled anchor the next morning we sucked up a big glob of kelp in the sea water intake. Had to dive on it with no wet suit, oh my, cold. If you can pull the anchor without the engine running that would prevent that from happening. Or maybe closing the thru hull on the sea water inlet, almost closed, just enough flow to keep the pump wet, might work?
