Re: Anchor weight for 1650 Ib boat...

Danforth type anchors seem to get a bad rap around here, but in mud bottoms like Chesapeake Bay and Long Island Sound, they work well. Main problem is they do not reset reliably in a windshift. I cruised for 30 years on Long Island Sound with just a pair of Danforths and had few problems. My current second anchor is a Fortress and I like it.
