44lb bruce, 200 feet of 5/16" chain. Danforth 12H on 250 feet of braided nylon. 44lb delta (weeds). Fortress off stern if needed, and big fortress in bilge for storms. Five anchors each with own rode. five to one minimum scope for chain and seven to one for nylon. straight out from Cap'n Fatty's latest book, How to Inexpensively and Safely Buy Outfit and Sail a Small Vessel Around the World.
