I have had success in reasonable current anchoring my 14' cataraft. I did not notice any dipping, diving or side to side movement in the moderate flows in which I anchored (Hoh and Yakima rivers). I was not in fast water by any means, but in current that was greater than I would have tried to anchor my 9' pontoon boat. I've fished out of drift boats that seemed to hold anchor well and move very little in moderate current. I still think I'd like to have a drift boat...and a raft, but I'm happy with the cataraft.
