Hard1 is right attach them to something
In permanent mooring terms best bet is to have two anchors attached to each other by a long length of heavy chain. Place this horizontally on the sea bed in line with the current or wind, which ever is stronger, one anchor you can pull in the other you have to dig in. from the middle of the chain take your riser up to the mooring buoy good but more speny than a truck tyre Des

that video is pretty funny....and i wasnt seioursly saying that people carry around an anchor with no rope or anything i was just (trying) to make a joke But seioursly i would think the rope would get to tight over the tubes if it was tied to the bow cleat....

Ok fair comment. Rope (attached to anchor) via cleat on the strongest part of the forrard locker up and through a fairlead on the bow. Keep the tubes hard! Whatever.....
