Be careful around 25knots average wind strength. Below this level boats with poorly set anchors will still hold, but about this wind strength they will start to drag. If they hold at this level their anchor is reasonably set and they usually hold in higher wind.

Around 40knots, or just below, is another transition point at this level a lot of boats with well set anchors will start dragging.

Only rough rules of thumb, but I find them useful.

Yes Noelex, they do joke. Usually those doing the joking have toy anchors that retain the original sales stickers. God help me if I ever find myself in a 40K situation!

...or even anchoring substrates that are just different from what a particular person is experienced with. Different bottom types can require different methods.

Re: 80# Manson Supreme Surprise!

It has been our experience that the manson anchor requires more scope in shallow water when yaw is involved as it will work the head loose when the chain has tension because the shaft is fixed unlike the cqr. I am very happy with the MS 100lb I have but more scope in shallow water with high wind is a must

No anchor will grip a tile floor.

Don't lose confidence, you have a fine product.
