Coz the front in overhanging a hell of a lot. Big gust and she may topple?

If u anchor her hard enough to stop her bouncing off the rock when the tide comes in you risk pulling her under...

Plus not sure where it is but could be ran aground on one of the highest tides of the month so floating off could be tricky...

Sorry I thought that link from Thousand Islands Expeditions gave all details, It basically blew a right hoolie here in Pembrokeshire the other night, and this rib obviously dragged her mooring in Porthclais Nr St Davids, whether it was a hired mooring or private I don't know.
But it's certainly is worth recovering before the next high tide, or more damage could occur with ground swell surging in the harbour at high.
