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.

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).

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??

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...

In a charted restricted area?

In a channel is one.

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

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.

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