RE: concern about rudder damage when anchoring stern in. I use an anchor buddy but set it up so my boat sits about 20 feet off shore. There's more than enough stretch in the anchor buddy to pull it in to board, and with the slope of the lake bottom, I still have about a foot or so under the rudder. I haven't had any problems with rollers and the boat moving, but where we anchor at night, we're in a reasonably quiet part of the lake.
