I can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for.\n\nI've decided on an 80lbs Manson Supreme anchor. \n\nOn the other end of things, I strongly prefer a manual windlass. The Lofrans Manual Windlass has served me well on 2 previous boats. \n\nThe largest it accepts 3\/8" HT chain, which has a working load limit of 5400lbs.\n\nThe 3\/4" dock lines for this boat have a wll of 17,000lbs.\n\nI can source anchor shackles of up to 14,000lbs.\n\nSo the windlass is severely limiting my anchoring strength by limiting my chain size. \n\nWhat should I do? \n\nI cannot afford, nor do I even like powered windlasses .\n\nI live at anchor through named storms and severe thunderstorms and prefer to be safe.
