The type of keel does not really affect anchoring.. technique does..
This is what I do.. if you decide to try it out do it somewhere quiet to start till you learn your boats quirks well enough to use them.. start with at least 1 crew member
till you know her moves..
1st/ Go to all chain.. a rope
rode has no weight resistance to offer the bow..
Usually in a near full anchorage I do at least one circuit to gauge the effects of wind/current on how the boats are lying, who's on rope
and who's on chain.. angle of chain.. up n down or at an angle..
Once I pick my spot I cut through and approach head
to wind at just enough speed for control.. as I get to about 10 metres from the 'drop' I go to neutral and centre the tiller/wheel, release the main sheet, walk forward where all is set up and drop the hook..
'Your boats 'wheigh on' is something you'll have to learn..'
Usually there's still slight forward movement as the hook bottoms and the chain then feeds out in an arc
as the boat falls off.. I let out 15-20metres then lock of or jam the chain on a cleat as the weight of the boat pulls the chain straight and pivots the anchor.. starting the digging in.. as the bow starts coming head
to wind I let out 5 metres more fast then lock again..
this usually completes the bedding in...
Should mention here I like to handball my chain on boats upto 36ft.. touch tells a lot.. also a foot on the chain ahead of the roller will send the telltale vibrations of a dragging anchor.. I also sail in a tide range of -3+ metres with currents.
So.. assuming the anchor seems set I move to the mast
and drop the main keeping an eye on my 'Marks'.. tidy the main then connect my bridle
and feed out to suit.. engine
If however there's weed I have dragged a couple of times.. in which case I nip back and sheet in the main then haul in the hook as fast as I can.. the act of hauling in the chain brings her head up and tacks back and forth as you haul in.. this is where picking your spot well comes in as she should.. once the hook lifts.. fall off to around 70* before the wind powers the main enough to get wheigh on.. and you want that gap between the boats either side.. once anchors near the roller jam on cleat and go aft.. put engine
and clear the anchorage then AP/TP while you go forward to either stow or set up for another try.
I never use the engine to 'Bed In'.. Gravity and nature work fine.
