What size boat are you anchoring?

I have a 11 lb bruce/claw anchor, a 14 lb plow anchor (for weeds) and a 12 lb fluke anchor, for my 21 ft walk around, and a 8 lb navy anchor (that I got for free) on my little boat.

Pound for pound the bruce/claw anchor holds best. The only times it has dragged, is in weeds, so I got the plow anchor for weeds.

Make sure you use 5-8 feet of chain with the anchor, and that you have enough rode(anchor line).

The anchors on my big boat, are all set up to break away, so I can retrieve the anchor backwards if it gets hung up in something.

Ebay has the 11 lb bruce anchors for about 40 bucks.

It's pricey, but the Box Anchor by Slide Anchor will out hold anything else on the market. No need to carry chain, and only a 2 to 1 scope for rope - half the amount of rope a traditional anchor takes.
