i just used 1/2" 3-strand rope, spliced each end into loops, and put a danik hook with a buoy like this:

anchor buddy! I start it thru the fitting of the anchor and then route it thru the bow then the clasp back to the anchor...... so its doubled over.... it makes it from like 15-25 ft when fully stretched...elasticity is twice as strong, I usually achor the front of the boat it 6 ft of water so the rear of the boat is in 3 ft at party cove.... it has never NOT held even with that short of a scope, I need that short of a scope when in real close proximity to other boats.

Only drawbacks are storage space for the anchor, and you gotta be carefull with it. Those anchors are vinyl and fiberglass's worst nightmare.
