After tying up with my cousin's boat this weekend out at Mandeville, I came to the realization that I did not have the correct anchor or ground tackle to do this correctly. We were able to manage due largely in part to my cousin's ingenuity. I have a setup for lake to shore use.

1 grapnel anchor
1 boat anchor buddy
Rope
Large stake for shore

We did this type of boating for the first 2 to 3 years. Fast forward to now (10yrs later) we are doing 99% of boating in the Delta. Every time I threw out the grapnel it would not grab very well since it did not have the correct rode. So I have read some anchor threads here on WW and now have some questions of my own. Please bear with me.

Boat is a F21 (21' boat)

1. Danforth anchor or box anchor in the delta
2. 1/2" or 3/'8" line?
3. If danforth what scope is "safe" 5:1 or 7:1

I just got a segmented mushroom anchor to put on the stern of the boat. I like the pluses of the box anchor:

2:1 scope
No chain
Compact foldaway design

On the flipside, I saw everyone in a big boat this past weekend using a danforth. Do I go with a Fortress version or something less expensive. I will need to get correct rode for the grapnel. I will need rope, chain, bag, eyelet, and maybe a snubber.

Comment please.
