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

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

1974 Ranger 33

Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't
