Re: Anchor weight for 1650 Ib boat...

Most of my anchoring is going to be overnight in the Potomac River Va, and perhaps around the Chesapeake Bay area.

Point taken about windage etc and I will look out for the more modern anchors, though I understand they can be quite a bit more expensive. My boat cost me 1600 dollars so getting an anchor a quarter of the value is not in the cards. I was mostly looking at the galvanized lewmar bruce styled anchors for the most part.
