I use (3) 21# Deltas' 120 degrees apart for my Cape Dory 25 in a 15' deep tidal river with a 3 knot current. This easily held in a 48 knot noreaster.
From the anchors, 50' of 3/8" chain to a ring, then a swivel, 15' of chain
through a buoy, another swivel, then (2) pendants to the p&s chocks, then
to a single cleat.
After the blow the 3/8" rope pendants melted almost in half! at the chocks.
That was the blow that saw many anchored, moored, and slip'd boats ruined. Mine came out fine.
