That is a big leap in size/weight. Very much in the territory where a windlass assist would be helpful.

These old-fashioned Rocna-style anchors claim more holding power for their size/weight compared to similar size competitors. I would think that Nightowl could manage with one that is no heavier than his Bruce/Claw (although he did not mention its weight).
