Actually do you not need 3?

  • A Red Ensign (assuming you have decided to flag it as a British Boat which I think was your plan).
  • A Courtesy Flag for the country you are visiting (does Corisca have its own flag).
  • A Diver Down Flag?

Yes, as opposed to the A-Flag,,,, we all use over here

then again, when in 'Rome', there's always the belt and braces approach

RIBase
I'm now a little confused after reading this thread! Having just purchased a second hand Ribeye 600 with what looks to be a 3-4kg grapnel anchor with around 4m of chain as the supplied anchor, I'd like to use that as a spare and purchase a reliable main....

Would a 4.5Kg Danforth style with 6m of 8mm chain hold in most (relatively sheltered) situations? Or do I need the 7Kg one?

I think it very much depends on what you want to use the rib for and what sort of conditions you are likely to be out in, but you probably need to be looking for something a bit bigger, suppose it also depends what will fit in the anchor locker. I like the leaded rope rather than a chain, maybe not as good as chain but to my mind is much better than dragging chain over the tubes

good luck with whatever you choose

Danforth will be better than the grapnel.

Will let others comment on weight. But I think Trimix's boat is a lot bigger than yours.

Danforths work well in mud/sand but a bit less predictable in rock or even weed.
