I'd highly recommend looking at the next gen anchors, like the Rocna, Manson Supreme, Buegel, etc.... since they have far more holding power than older designs and set/reset better in most conditions.

Copies of original design anchors aren't a good idea, as many aren't built to the same specifications as the originals.

I have a Rocna as the primary on my boat and it sets far better and far more securely than older designs, like the CQR, Danforth, and Bruce. Maine Sail, another member here, has most of the commonly used anchors and his two recommendations are usually the Rocna and the Manson Supreme.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
