If you do that Do Not do what the previous owner of one of my boats did which was to drill a matching hole in the shank of the anchor to hold it securely.. for that it worked great.
However we were stuck on anchor for three days in strong kabatic winds in Cascais (35-40kts) and on the 4th day when the wind
eased to a moderate 20kts we went ashore for supplies and on our return saw our boat
being blown out to sea, luckily it drifted close to a fishing boat
who managed to hook the chain and hold it till I got to my boat.
I got on board and on hauling the chain back in found the shank had sheared at the hole.
had buried well into the sand but the strain put on the shank by the boat sailing back and forth in high winds had weakened the shank to snapping point.
I attached my Bruce (no hole) to the chain and re-anchored giving thanks to the Portuguese fishermen who had saved my boat.. the gods were smiling on me that day..
