I was somewhat surprised that use of the anchor was not recommended except in emergency situations. The normal "anchorage" is done by beaching the boat on a sandy or gravel shoreline and stern tying at a 45 degree angle to steel posts driven into the ground on a steep beach. (sledge hammer and posts supplied) A boardwalk was also supplied to walk down from the bow to the beach. It all worked well, although weather was good so the anchoring wasn't really tested.
