and pay attention to how you set the anchor...I mean back off hard on it to
make sure it is set well and if you can use at least 7 to 1 rode to
depth...I use a 15KG Bruce style knock off with about 40 feet of 5/16 high
tensile chain as my main hook and I carry my 35 lb CQR and a large Danforth
complete with rodes under the vee berth as spare...I have had very good
experiences on the Bruce style anchor...a lot depends on the type of bottom
and the set as far as holding power goes
