I think a pair of RW Speedos would work quite well actually we could use them as the "control"

Bob, another important thing is to make sure is that the anchor is pulling from the keel-line. Ideally the bow eye or central bow cleat, if you have one. This way there is least resistance from the tide or wind causing the boat to snag at it's anchor. Attach only a foot down oneside of the hull and she lies awkwardly and it applies a lot more pull on the anchor.
