Anchor

If you have a dink which is light enough to drag onto the beach, or one with wheels on the back end, it will be easy to get the boat well above the high water mark.

But for many inflatables, especially the larger models with big outboards, dragging the boat up the beach just isn't practical.

There are two answers. One is to drop the beach-goers ashore and take the dink back out. The second is to anchor the boat outside any waves which may be breaking. If you are taking this latter course, consider the current and any shifts in the wind. If it is likely the boat will be swung further away from shore than it is prudent to swim, part of the anchor rode can be used to tie one end of the boat to the shore.
