Anchoring Near Victoria, Best Anchor

So I'm going to be living "on" the hook near Victoria BC, what would the best style of anchor be, and whats the minimum size it should be to hold a 38 footer?

Some sort of anchor that will repel the hoards of officials that are going to show up to haul your a** out of there.

Mabell is right....LOL...other than that look at the chart. If anchoring in mud go for a Bruce or Rocna. Size? The biggest you can fit and handle. Remember that some areas have strong tides so your anchor will swing, therefore Danforth is not the best. It is better used in one direction pulls.
