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

HighFly

On my I37ms I have an Fortress FX32, 60' of 3/8 chain and 400' of 3/4" three strand as a stowed storm anchor. A #44 Bruce for rocks and mud, and a #35 delta for sand and shifting wind areas with 320' of 5/16 chain on the bow, and a small danforth as a stern anchor.
I also have a 35lb CQR in the garden

If I could start from scratch, I would do what chucklesR said.
