7 Kg CQR style knock off (plough). 10 feet of fairly heavy chain and 40m of line (really need to get more though as I am often in 60 - 70 m of water so it wouldn't do much good in that.

4kg Sentinel with 5m of chain, 30 m of rope (and another 25m of rope to extend it if required), For a 3.9 m boat. Anchor is oversized as I kept it from a previous boat. Rope is marked at 5m lengths.

Same type of anchor as I have for the rib .
Only thing is mine maybe a little to small for the rib but it works o.k.

Yes i guess it can be done but the cost of regalving it may not be worth it.

If i come across one i may have ago and see how it turns out depends on the casting of the anchor.

I use a 5kg & 7.5kg Bruce, the 7.5 held my xs600 in a F9 storm but did not do my nerves much good watching from the shore

Recommended by who?
I have one, I like the way it stows nicely but only seems to hold well in a rocky situation.....
