Thanks everyone for the advice. The anchor is a fortress style, 3' in length and about 50lbs. It's a major eye soar sitting on the bow, as it has rust spots and old dried up fused on algae splotches. I don't use it all that often, as most of the key locations we cruise too either have docks or moorings. However, we're heading south to Cabo in the '08 Ha Ha and then up to La Paz for the winter, so it will start to get used quite a bit.

Not to start another anchor opinion thread, but given my 25,000lbs displacement at 47', what are your suggested anchor types for the Baja peninsula specifically?
