How many anchors do you really need?
Just bought a boat from somebody and going through everything.
The boat has an anchor on the bow with chain & rope rode in good shape in a locker.
In a lazarette there's bag with chain & rope rode and anchor
Got another bag with chain & rope rode and anchor
Spare anchor in anchor locker in bow
Huge tub of rode under the vberth
An old rope rode in the bilge at the stern
So that's 3 complete setups with extras (To top it off I found an anchor in my dock box (just moved to a new slip)
So my thoughts are to just keep the nicer bag/rode/anchor setup (can use for bow & stern or storm (at bow) or spare. We mostly day sail and occasional weekends up to a week, most of that time is on a mooring, in southern california. Is there any reason not to get rid of the extra bag setup and spare rodes/anchors?
