Re: spare anchor
I know you are north of me a bit, Anacortes vs Edmonds, if you can figure out the soil type you are anchored in, let us know that too!
My personal bias is NOT to use a danforth style around here, as I have had more issues of the not setting than the bruce I use. I will admit, the fast set did a good job in the conditions I have used it one time. My lewmar bruce knockoff worked well at that place too, some others with danforth styles have had some issues. It is harder sand at this place.
My personal asking, is I have toyed with going to a slightly bigger main anchor than what I have, a main anchor frankly that is boltable for my usage might be a good thing. then again, maybe not...........Since I race most of the time, tie up to docks, a BIG anchor below is added ballast......but that is another issue that some do not want to address for they want BIG ANCHOR! or chain or some other issue.....LOLOL
