I use a simple anchor hook attached by a short line around my Sampson post to a small cleat on my bowsprite. I have a Rocna anchor that lives on my bob stay. When I get close to an anchorage I loosen the line about 2 inches, when I'm ready to drop the hook I can pull the anchor chain tight, un-hook the chain hook and let her go, the whole process is easy and takes about 2 seconds. When I purchased the boat she had 200' of 5/16 chain and a beautiful bronze windlass, about 300' total on the bow, way too much for my little girl.
