I do this every time were on holiday I made 4 weights from 20litre oil drums the first one I made with a long 30mm nylon rope then the other 3 have a short loop set in the concrete all you do is drop the first one over board then feed the next 3 down the rope attach your body and hey presto instant mooring

That sounds good
I have some fire bricks that are very heavy I might make a weight out of them I think

If I intend staying in an area for a while .. I make a temporary mooring too.

At low tide ..preferably on spring tides ... I insert a galvanised caravan securing screw ... around 3 ft in length.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/x1-Galvanis.../dp/B017WDVVDM

Obviously it only works on sandy or gravel bottoms .. not solid rock.

Its held my hardshell boats in strong winds too..so would have no problem holding a small inflatable. A length of chain..rope and buoy and its done. A length of metal pipe acts as a lever to assist screwing it into the seabed.

Not what I wanted though.

Old Tractor tyre filled with concrete with a stainless eye/bar cast in.

Cheap, robust and you "roll" it into place !

engine blocks/train wheels and the like are all fine but awkward to site+ can cost.............

Old tyres are free and cement is cheap.

Hopefully I can deploy something of such weight as a permanent anchor but will soon find out via the club on the law/rules of this. . . I think it will not be allowed so deploying a day fixed anchor will be the solution.
