Thank you for ANY advice!

I agree with JK, sometimes it pays to keep things simple, I don't go out in bad weather, not up to it at the moment, but do want a good anchor for The Menai, so I use a Bruce along with a Liros leaded rope anchor line, not the cheapest option but does save pulling chain in across the tubes and has worked well for us the last few seasons, worth a look
