Most of the time I only anchor for a spot of lunch, fishing etc with us still on board. For this I have a 3kg grapnel with 5m of chain. To date we've not gone anywhere with this this when deplyed.
Would I be happy leaving the boat overnight on this when ashore? Nope so if this is likely to happen I change the grapnel for a CQR as this holds pretty well and gives me a little more confidence the the grapnel.
