Dixon's farm didn't have a boatshed (WH; illustration "Is it for us?" Ch. 1) for the boat. There's also no mention of one, or of a jetty, in the description in that same chapter. Similarly, in SA (Ch.VI) "...they pulled Swallowís nose well up on the beach and tied the painter round a big stone." If Roger and Titty by themselves couldn't beach Swallow there, they could have used the anchor to secure her (SA beginning of Ch. XIII).
