If you want to sleep thru the night 15' of chain is half of what you should have at a minimum. Your chain is a big factor in your anchors holding power.
Leave the danforth type anchors to lunch anchoring. Yank on of those at 90 degrees in a gust a see what happens. The tow boat guys love them.
I have a cqr but would buy the Manson in a heartbeat
