A 45 pound Danforth might be too small, but a Manson is a different anchor. My 42 Catalina went through a tropical storm last year that was right on the edge of a cat one hurricane, at anchor, on a 45 pound Manson Supreme, with 160 feet of 5/16 chain in 20 feet of water, without coming unstuck. Mostly mud bottom.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

The thing not to forget is that EVERYTHING depends on the bottom, there are bottoms where a plain old Danforth will outperform a Supreme or any other design of the same weight (soft silty bottoms), we have plenty of data to back it up... Over all the new generations anchor allow for better setting ability and holding in hard packed bottoms... a more reliable set... Better package over all. To envelop the challenge of anchoring in soft bottoms we recommend to size up....
There can be a 10 fold difference holding power between a firm bottom and loose silt....

Main, I hear you loud and clear!
We have tons of footage but it will take a little time to organize it into a presentable fashion....
