I would keep 3 ( 2 handy, one backup ) and set yourself up for anchoring in Catalina; ( different bottoms and depths ) a plow type is good all around with 1' of 3/8" bbb chain/boat length ( 40' boat=40 foot chain ) and then several hundred feet of 3/4 rode; depths of 20 - 100+'. @ 6:1 is a boat load of rode

Do that and you should be good at any anchorage in SoCa & Mex
