Re: Advise on Weight & Type of Anchor for Islander 37

Highfly, the advantage of using one of the new generation anchors (Mantus, Rocna, Manson) is that you don't have to carry around a bunch of different anchors for different bottoms. Also, since they have much better holding power you don't need to exaggerate on the weight of the anchor. A 45lb anchor for your boat is plenty.
