I use a 5kg Bruce and 20m of chain and 50m of 10mm rope.

Probably a little over the top, but then we have places to anchor where the tide howls through.

After watching several boats over the years put anchor down and go for lunch only to find the boat is some 200m away from where they left it, I'd er on the side of caution.

I don't know whether it applies to RIBs or hardboats, but the theory is enough chain for 5 times the depth your anchoring at. Seems a bit over the top if you anchor at 25m!!!

Why do you need a chain leader between the anchor and the rope?
