Anchor for a Smaller Cat

I know....But as there is so much wisdom here I would like your indulgence please.

The Wharram tiki 26 that I am building will live on the hook, no fancy marinas for this little piglet.

She is low windage and probably will come in well under two tonnes. What anchor weight/model would be suitable do you think?

I have seen a Tki 26 that was anchored in the Brisbane river with no bridle set.Is this common practice on smaller cats?
She is 26 ft long.

cheers paul.

Re: Achor for smaller cat

I'd have a Manson Supreme (or the like) and a bridle. I had a bridle on my TIKI 21' and never regretted it.

No bridle you will wonder around like a dog on ice put a bridle about lest 10 foot out fro Center of boat will sit nice and not so Mach strain on one place.

Re: Anchor for a Smaller Cat

I would have a Fortress (great anchors, light weight) and another anchor of a different type. On my tri my working anchor is a Rocna 33 pounder and I also have a Fortress FX-37.
