Re: Not your typical anchor question

If you are anchoring a Bristol 24 (as per your profile), a medium sized Danforth should work well enough overnight, especially in the sandy stretches of the East Coast that you are likely to frequent. How much does your inadequate lunch hook weigh? Danforth recommends their 16-pound standard anchor for a boat up to 31'. We have their 25 pounder for our 36' sloop (along with a second one as a spare that we've never needed to use) and have anchored in lots of places since we got the boat in 1999.
