Hi, I am very new to the "bigger boat" club.

I used to have a 16.5 ft / 2,000 lb boat that was very easy to anchor. I pick up my new X-25 (21.5 ft / 4,300 lbs) on Friday and have no idea what kind of anchor to get.

I would love suggestions on anchor type, size, and length of rope to get.

I am very excited about the new boat, but don't want to float away!

Thanks!!

Most everyone loves the box anchor, but it is pricey.

Didn't really read the thread, but I sweat by a small box anchor. Used to blow all over with a Danforth anchor but got a box anchor and never move an inch. Love it!!
