Seems to me that after spending a lot of money
on a boat, to go light or inexpensive on anchor and ground tackle is a fools proposition.
Go as heavy on the primary anchor as you can carry. I currently have 2 foreward, and will be switching to one heavy anchor when I start really needing the security
. At this time that will be a manson supreme, but the rockna is up there on the list as well. If I were to go with a 2nd anchor up front, the manson Ray would be my choice, or a bruce.
For a stern anchor, the fortress
, set up for storm conditions.
In the bilge
, a Paul luke. Don't think I would ever use it, but it is a small price
to pay if off patagonia and I need it.
As far as galvanized vs stainless. The stainless anchors are so gosh darn pretty sitting up there, that I think, I would work some OT just to put it up there. Add some stainless chain just for the bling.....
