Putting down a mooring

I am thinking of putting down s Summer mooring for the occasions I want to keep our 6 m RIB in the water for a week or a few days. I would put it down in May/June and take it up end of September. Most likely in 5 metres of water. Any suggestions for suitable diy ground tackle that could be put down each year.
BTW this is on Ile De Re and does not seem to be any issues about private moorings.

one thing to keep in mind here is your insurance, if it is a mooring you put down and something happens they may not cover you, check it out.

when i used to keep my old boat on a swinging mooring it had to put laid by a pukka company and checked every year. maybe things have changed since then but do no harm checking.
