What size anchor?

Postby avidsailor » Sat Sep 22, 2018 3:30 pm

I own a 22ft. What size anchor should I consider. I am looking at a Danforth.

Another thing to consider is what type of rode you use.
Rope, chain or a combo. If you can get 10' of chain at the anchor your holding power will go up!
The more chain the merrier because of the weight of the chain. However on a 22'r any length of chain becomes a hassle to deal with.

My 22's I always had at least first 10 feet of chain and the rest rope.

Just a thought!

Thanks for your input. I found a Danforth Model 600 at an estate sale. Included chain and a small rode. Paid $15.00

I dont see how you can go wrong at $15. If it works......great. If not.....use it somewhere else, or you can always sell it and get your 15 bucks back I would think.
