I prefer to anchor on all chain, which is too heavy for a Moore 24, and to use anchors without pivot points, which are potential finger pinchers. My previous boat, The Hawke of Tuonela, had three 33-pound Bruce anchors, a 35-pound Delta and a 20-pound aluminum Spade. For a decade the Spade was my anchor. However, the correct Spade for Gannet weighs 10 pounds and costs more than $400. I may buy one eventually, but for now I settled on a 14-pound Delta costing $105 at an end-of-season sale and matched it with a 230-foot rode of ½-inch, 8-strand plait with 20-feet of ¼-inch chain. I also bought the smallest bow roller I could find, and replaced the U-bolts for bow lines with cleats. The rode is oversized for Gannet, which is a compromise I can live with.
