Horses for courses, if one boats in my patch, 75-100m depth can be VERY close to shore - nasty shore at that....

Doesn't all have to be in one length though, which makes it a bit easier.

I keep a 30m length attached to the anchor, along with 10 m of chain. I then have another 20m length that can extend if required.

I also have the sea anchor that would be used until we'd drifted in far enough for the length of line on board.

isnt a sea anchor designed to slow your drift? and what if you never drift IN, only OUT?

You've all commented on how much rope but what about types of anchor?. I've got two bins, one for normal cruising area and then put the other one on when I'm going somewhere I don't know that well, when I moor up for a beach landing I have a quick drive by to have a look for depth, rocks etc, then I drive away from the beach, throw the anchor out and back into the beach, I take the other anchor with me when I go ashore, job done, well in most cases, had some good feck ups
