Rocna

Thanks Sd,
That makes sense. After all I've seen and read I expect it will be my primary anchor. The 20 sounds right.

Dquack-

The Rocna 20 is probably overkill for your boat. IIRC, the Pearson 33 has a displacement of about 11,000 lbs. The Canadian Sailcraft 36T is about 18,000 lbs. If a Rocna 15 can hold a CS 36T, it shouldn't have any trouble with a Pearson 33.

Honestly, i think the Rocna 20 is probably too big for your boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

In the rules they mention two places where you SHOULD NOT anchor. And yet I have found people anchored there. Where are they?

I have noticed that the latest Vector charts from NOAA show restricted anchoring areas, but the raster charts don't.
What do we go by? I will try to nail down a sample...

Actually they are:
1. Do not anchor in a narrow channel or fairway.
2. Do not anchor at the termination of a Traffic separation scheme.

one is tad-amount to parking in the middle of a narrow road.
And the other is parking in the intersection of two busy streets.
Do you get the picture there??

dquack -

Look up your boat length and displacement on the Rocna sizing chart - take the larger of the two and you should be set. Unlike most sizing charts, there is no need to go up a size from the recommended anchor. My boat (just under 41', just over 22000 lbs) has plenty of anchor with a Rocna 25.

Note that a "tonne" is a metric ton, 1000 kg or about the same as a long ton (2240 lbs).

SVA-

My recommendation of the Rocna 15 was based on the Rocna sizing chart for a Pearson 33 that weighs in at 11,000 lbs or so. The Rocna 15 is recommended for a 33' boat up to 16,000 lbs.
