What weight claw are you using now?

Our boats have similar displacement. I would spec the 33/35 Rocna/Manson.

At some point, going too large for the working anchor becomes a hassle and liability. The 33/35 is still manageable if the windlass fails, and is less likely to damage the boat or cause an injury. You can carry a second anchor to use in series when dire conditions are predicted, or stow a larger storm anchor below.
