I am interested in what anchors people are using to save space as today I found trying to place two anchors aboard a six metre boat was a nightmare. I planned a 7.5 plough and a folding 4.5 but this almost proved impossible so I have found the Holt folding unit which is costly but excellent and then the grapnell in different weights. Anyones thoughts and ideas?

This is what I was hoping to do following the MCA codes
Main anchor to be 8kg with 10m 6mm chain and 20m 12mm rope
Kedge to be 4kg with 10m 6mm chain and 30m 10mm rope.

But this is what I may do

I have been following anchors away forum but it space now I am talking about and trying to meet MCA recommendations

Hi ian I have two my main is a 15kg delta with 5m of chain and my back-up kedge is a 9kg folding both of which fit in the forward anchor locker of the Ribcraft with plenty of room for 50m of rope.
Hope this helps.
