45 lb. anchors are pretty small for a boat of that size, even if you're using three of them. More than three really doesn't make much sense, since you'll have to make the setup overly complicated.
If this is for a storm mooring, you really want the largest anchors you can get—and more small ones don't make any real sense... each of the individual anchors should be sufficient to hold the boat on their own...
I have a 28' trimaran and I'm using a 33 lb. anchor as my primary, and a 45 lb. anchor isn't all that much bigger and your boat is significantly bigger, heavier and with much greater windage than my 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.
