When I tie up at the beach I use a 30 lb rubber coated navy anchor (like the ones sold with the EZ Slalom course) and a heavy five foot chain to secure the bow. I tie that line to a boat bumper. On the other end of the bumper I have a clip to the bow eye. In the back I run a line from one of the lifting eyes to a stake on the beach. I pull the boat in so that there is about a foot of clearance for the underwater gear. This technique has withstood the worst of storms on Lake Powell and the tiny wind blown lakes in eastern Colorado. The only down side is wading out to unhook the bow eye. But if you have an open bow you just reach over and release.
