The 35 lb'der will be okay as a "lunch hook", occasional, or whatever
you want to call. It can even be considered big for that service.
Serious cruising where you have many more nights/year on the hook and
very little discretion on when to stay overnight at anchor means a
minimum 45# is in order. More chain helps too and getting the hook
down before Happy Hour is better.
On the 35 footer, I've been summer cruising with a "temporary" 22#
Delta plow and 10 fathoms of chain for 5 years now. I've got an
appropriate 33# Bruce Lee once I get my bow roller & winch installed. :)
