Depends on the site, but I dive off a dead (unattended, anchored) boat probably 75% of my dives. 15-20% I dive off an anchored but attended boat (if we get swept away or lost they pull the anchor and come get us). 5% of our diving actually requires a live unanchored boat.

I have both 1 and 2kg on mine, if you are going to leave the boat anchored the go with the 2 kg, having said that the 1 kg has never let me down!
