Not really .. I have done both .. the mooring idea is only complicated by the rake of the beach, so you dont know what length of rope you'll need, (and as its a fixed loop you either have way too much or not enough) plus if the mooring is twitchy with wind, your ropes can twist at the anchor pulley as the boat switches over time, making recovery more awkward sometimes
If your know your spots, its perfect though
Tenders are ok but you end up not deflating them sometimes
doesent do much for for fuel consumption tied to the A frame
