Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

My boat came w/a 45# cqr, hinge worn out, and rusty but never any problems w/moderate anchoring w/tide changes for a couple of years now.
I just bought a 45# Manson supreme as primary anchor.
Also, I want to get a bigger anchor for trop stroms/h-canes if I have to move from the dock and can't relocate the boat out of the way. My boat is a 10ton 40'er, thinking about a bigger rocna/manson 55#,65#...but kept off the boat, used in emergency.
On the other hand, I am thinking(hoping) the 45#er Manson would be fine on 200' of chain in a protected area(mud sand bottom), even for the worst blow.
