My new Raymarine C80 lists, in addition to the usual depth and anchor dragging alarms, an "anchor depth max" and "anchor depth min" alarms. Does anyone know what the purpose of these is?

Probably, they're there to prevent you from anchoring in water too shallow or deep for your boat and rode length. For instance, if you draw 6', anchoring in less than 10' of water is probably risky. If your rode is 250' long, then anchoring in more than 25' of water is probably not a great idea.
