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

Yes, I have just read about the Use's of the different anchors in the 2012 West Marine Catalog.

Now, I know (just pointed out above) that I do not need a heavy weight anchor. I need a anchor (best design) to dig in .. on any type of bottom and hold. I read about the Manson Supreme & Rocna Spade. I read that they hold on 4 different bottoms. I'm zeroing in on -- Rocna 20, 44 Lb. # 9261652 about $ 699.00 or the Manson Supreme, has about the same specs. . I found the attaching gear too - 9/16, 3 strand (250 ft.) anchor rope with 20 ft. of 5/16 HT G4 chain at
$ 150.00. I'm writing this stuff down because I want to get it right the 1st time (to be reviewed).
