I am not sure what the original poster is looking for.

In my research I have come across volumes of formulae for all the variables. Slip. etc.

Of course at some marinas I don't think I would tie off to some of thei cleats

I finally found an answer

Hi All,

Well I finally found an answer to my question.

It seems that a three blade Sailer prop on my boat will develop 880 pounds of thrust in reverse at WOT ...

This answers my question as it pertains to setting the hook. No anchor, for my boat, should drag with only 880 pounds of pull/thrust and it should be a good set especially as I only set with 80% throttle which would be less than the 880 and closer to 700 lbs.....
