Re: Seachoice anchors

Okay, couple pics of the Seachoice, or at least what was selling as a Seachoice five years ago:

anchor3

I wish the bottom plate were dead flush with or even slightly inset relative to the sides, so the point and edges would present better. But otherwise, it is a pretty decent anchor & totally worth the $75 delivered cost.

Many sources advise 1# per foot for your primary; that's maybe a bit cautious but allows the anchor to serve as a light 'sheet' anchor or part of a tandem storm array. You planning to put any chain on this?
