Sounds to me like there isn't one answer..probably need to get a plough, Danforth or similar & then perhaps a grapnel for other conditions.

I used to do a fair amount of boating with my Dad years ago but never really took notice of kit like anchors as it was always there on the boats...Just used it!

Now having a boat myself after many years I need to get some practical experience..I do rememebr we had Danforth, plough & grapnel come to think of it.

Thanks for the links, afvise etc from everyone

Thanks, Cap'ns Polwart, Chappelow and JSP, for your sage explanations of the chain/anchor/rope interface and raison d'etre. Yet again ribnet shows its strengths.

Thanks guys.

A 2.5 kilo stainless bruce anchor can hold a 20 foot sports cruiser in sand.
so anything like this will be best choice for mud/ sand,/ silt or shingle.
if its rocks then grapnell.

Mine is stainless with 4 meters of stainless small link chain.
Being stainless it looks fantastic as well.
