RE: Anchor in dinghy

Obviously on our 20' CC 'dinghy' we carry one (actually two) a lightweight fortress in the bow and a small folding grapnel in the stern.* On the 10' dink we just carry a folding grapnel.* In the Bahamas* it is standard practice to throw out a stern hook and tie the dinghy painter up to the dinghy dock leaving room for more folks at the dock.* We always toss out the*hook even in Florida when coming in to the beach too,*it makes it easier to get off in a falling tide and the we don't have to drag*the boat up and down the beach either as we use an 'anchor buddy' to hold the dinghy just off the beach.
