Re: Anchor weight for 1650 Ib boat...

As a longtime Chesapeake sailor that cruised thousands of miles in a 1400-pound catamaran....

* Don't get the Bruce. Unless dramatically oversize it will just drag in many coves with deep mud.

* Do get a 10 pound Danforth. Should hold through anything.

* Deltas are good, better than the Bruce in mud, but must be considerably heavier than the Danforth. About 16 pounds for you.

Manson is very good, but perhaps too pricy for your budget. Best choise, perhaps.

* Do get a second smaller Danforth-type. Always good to have 2. This will only need ~ 6 feet of chain.
