genieskip is on a distinguished road
I usually go with four anchors on longer cruises (a week or more) when far from my home mooring. A 60lb manson and a fortress 35 as storm anchors, a 44lb Spade as a working anchor and a light fortress as a lunch hook/kedging anchor, all with appropriate chain and line rodes.
